It appears that you bzipped a 0-byte .tar file.  This won't work.  You
need an actual empty tar file, otherwise setup complains with a message

Cygwin Setup
Can't open
for reading: Invalid or unsupported tar format

Arguably setup should cope with this, but it currently doesn't.  The
correct empty .tar.bz2 file should be 46 bytes, there are a number of
existing ones in _obsolete/ that you can simply copy and rename.
