It's not the missing directories; it's the unexpected (for setup.exe) file
magic number due to a slightly incompatible version of tar used to build
the packages.  This has been fixed in two ways -- updated packages have
been uploaded (but may not have propagated to your mirror), and setup was
taught to understand the other magic number (use the latest setup snapshot
from <http://cygwin.com/setup/snapshots/>).
