this need can be easily satisfied with this simple .bat file.

================ create_cygdrives.bat ===============

for /f %%x in ('cygpath -w /') do set cygwin_root=%%x
mkdir %cygwin_root%\cygdrive
for %%x in (a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z) do mkdir %cygwin_root%\cygdrive\%%x


it's in public domain ;-) so you can run it on your system, or
distribute it under any terms you want, or add it to setup.exe, or
do with it anything you like.

gosh, i'd like to see the day when all problems with cygwin will be
like this one...
