As a want to come a hybrid of Cygwin and Gentoos Emerge installer, I
rather have to figure out one of those hidden ways. If I can't find
it, I have to fall back from Cygwin to Interix. But that would cut
half of my target group.

Yes, it's time to dig a little deeper into the Cygwin scripts. It has
to be scriptable in the end. Then I can get it into Emerge. A
graphical setup.exe is the wrong way for my approach. However there
are scripts below.
