How about this kind of modification for the setup program: extract tar

Maybe You can consider to write and run simple script:
- find all links (find -type l)
- read target of link (readlink)
- remove link (rm)
- re-create link (ln -s)
The ln -s should honor CYGWIN=winsymlinks:native and every link should
be as You want.
