Unfortunately there is no automated install.
However, you can avoid the tedious process of manual package selection by
pre-initializing an /etc/setup/installed.db with the following contents:
packagename packagename-0-0.tar.bz2 0
anotherpackagename anotherpackagename-0-0.tar.bz2 0
yetanotherpackagename yetanotherpackagename-0-0.tar.bz2 0
setup.exe will then see these packages as installed at version 0-0, and
'upgrade' them to the current versions without you having to select each
