Creating a file within Cygwin with setting SYSTEM attribute

I have access to cpio sources that I would like to add support for 
copying/creating Cygwin's symbolic links.  At present, any files I 
create would be as regular files.  Any hints as how I would set this 
attribute so I could create these symbolic links.  Does setting _IFLNK 
in the mode automatically perform setting SYSTEM attribute?
