If you want an alternative to creating yet another tool, you might find
the following script kinda useful. A similar principle applies to the
use of rpm cross-compile toolkits.

#! /bin/bash
# convert a deb file to a cygwin setup.exe tarball

export PKG=`echo $1 | sed -e 's/_.*//'`
echo package $PKG
export VER=`echo $1 | sed -e 's/[^_]*_//' -e 's/_.*//'`
echo version $VER
export REL=1
echo cygwin release 1
export FULLPKG=${PKG}-${VER}-${REL}
export bin_pkg_name=${FULLPKG}.tar.bz2
export bin_pkg=`pwd`/${bin_pkg_name}

dpkg-deb -x $1 $PKG-$VER-temp && \
  cd $PKG-$VER-temp && \
  tar cvjf ${bin_pkg} * &&
  echo ${bin_pkg} created.
