To successfully build setup.exe, after downloading the files via:

$ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/cygwin-apps co setup

two additional packages are required.
These packages are bison and flex.

I made a patch to the README.

$ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/cygwin-apps diff -uN
>patch.20070922

and the patch is included below.

Hope this helps,
