This is the recipe I have used in the past:

    $ # change directory to top of build tree
    $ make prefix=/tmp/cygwin/usr install
    $ cd /tmp/cygwin/usr
    $ pkg.sh # see attached
    $ cd ..
    $ tar -cvzf cygwin-$(date +%Y%m%d)-1.tar.gz usr
    $ cp cygwin-$(date +%Y%m%d)-1.tar.gz /tmp/snapshots
    $ # run setup.exe and point it at /tmp/snapshots
