You could create the marker files in the normal postinstall phase via
script and remove them when you're done.  That way they wouldn't be
packaged and cygcheck would not complain if they're missing.  This is
however a lot less elegant unless cygport could be enhanced to provide
the boilerplate wrappers for that.

That would be the other option, but I don't know how hard that would be.
If it's already matching on "/etc/postinstall" to do that deed then it
might be a small change to simply just check for
