Assuming you are using Cygwin 1.7 I've created a script for myself,
that allows me to make a stripped down install cmd that would
reinstall all packages that I had installed, see:
It has mirror and cygwin directory names hard coded (change them to
what you use), and prints out commands that you can redirect to e.g.
cygwin-reinstall.cmd. Unless you have way too many packages it should
also fit into Windows command line limit...
