I use the in-the-wild, 'texlive 2012' distribution, which I like to

Due to a, what I believe is a dependency by auctex on texlive for some
reason, I keep getting a list of about 10 texlive related packages
automatically appended to what I want to install and I have to keep
manually [skip] them.
I would like to know some efficient way I could make that go away and
just have setup ignore texlive or have it see that I have it already,
but that it's just not a cygwin package, but user installed.
setup.exe only knows about Cygwin packages. You might be able to edit
/etc/setup/installed.db to trick setup.exe into thinking that you've
installed Cygwin's texlive.
