NullSoft Installer is a free, and easily configureable installation system, along the lines of MSI/InnoSetup. I am not sure if InnoSetup supports patching, or even if you will need such functionality. NSIS is the short name for the project, located easily via google.
 
PerlApp is the most comprehensive single-executable builder I have used, but then it is not free. (though there are commercial/personal versions AFAIK)

Not sure about using Cygwin perl… however using ActiveState Perl, if you have their PDK (Perl Dev Kit – Commercial), you could use PerlApp to create an executable file, and Perl MSI to create a setup file (.MSI).

 

If you don’t have PDK, then you could use Innosetup (freeware) to create the setup file (.EXE). I’m not sure what freeware options there are to create stand-alone executables from perl source.

 

Cheers
