It's in src/winsup/cinstall/

Note that setup is a mingw program, but it happens to include a copy
of cygwin1.dll anyway.  Technically, it's GPL'd because of that, but
as we (Cygnus) are the copyright holders for cygwin1.dll, we can make
an exception in this case until we sync up the sources.  It also
contains a copy of tar.exe, which definitely is GPL, but whos sources
are in tar/tar-src.tar.gz.

We'll have to either keep it in sync with the cygwin module, or
provide a setup-src.tar.gz in the top level :-)
