For the kde 3.1.1 release I had prepared a inno setup compiled installer. See for this 
scripts. A similar setup is required for kde 3.1.4 release, which is is 
currently available only a tar.bz2 files installable by hand or with the 
cygwin installer. 

The packages and dependencies could be found in 

The requested kde packages are listed on
The rest cames from the cygwin mirrors. 

This informations are targeted as an overview, may with this informations you 
already know enough, what to do. If not I can give you some more specs, but I 
have to prepare it, so let me know.
