Cygwin 1.7 deployment : disabling MD5 check?

I'm on the edge of massively deploying Cygwin 1.7 from Cygwin 1.5 (+400 
workstations), and I'm concerned about the time setup.exe takes to 
verify MD5 packages signature.

When the repository is a remote SaMBa share, it looks that setup.exe 
download all packages one time to check the signature and another time 
to install the package.

Is there a possibly to disable this check? As a workaround, I can 
silently synchronize the repository on the local drive and launching the 
setup from there, but it's more complicated that using a single 
repository on the network.
