Don't we need to roll a new version of setup?  The current version looks in
different locations depending on whether it's being run on Windows NT or not.

Do we still want to do this?  I think Corinna wants to keep a legacy 1.5 system
around for Windows 95 users but, if we do that, then I think we need setup.exe
to make it clear that this is a stale version of Cygwin.

I also need to do some upset stuff but it isn't anything too drastic.
