Never mind Q#3. It turns out that, error messages or no, the generated
setup.ini was sufficient to run the installation. However, one oddity:

Installing from a local directory, but choosing a brand new installation
into a brand new location, should initially result in every package from
the Base category being selected, right? Well, it didn't: my initial
chooser window indicated *no* packages would be installed. I had to
select my new 'fake' package with its massive requires: list to trigger
the Base stuff (and lots of other items) to install.  Just clicking on
the 'cygwin' package didn't do it.  Is this the expected behavior? 
Seems counter-intuitive to me, if I were installing from, say, a DVD
