So, is the "download source" option for setup.exe useful for anything? Can
you rebuild (all of) cygwin from it? What I mean is: there are these 80+
packages available with setup.exe. If I download the source for all of
them, install the source somewhere, run some build process against it, will
I end up with a working cygwin which is functionally equivalent to the
binary packages I downloaded using setup.exe?
