Not to contradict the other respondents (and it is not exactly what you
asked), but you do not need to create a cygwin package for one machine.
You can just configure, compile, etc.  However, you might want to check at
each step, singe the default prefix is probably /usr/local, which may not
be in your path.

(If that is wrong, I'm sure someone will correct it soon.)

Good luck,
