I am inclined to close this as WONTFIX, since the design has been this way for
years and nobody has complained; and requiring admin privildge to build the
installer is reasonable; also that nobody outside should be building and
distributing an installer, so we won't support non-ghostscript/artifex
personnel in that direction.

That said, I'll give you an outline of what needs to be done: the code one
needs to extract is psi/dwsetup.cpp around line 471 and the entire
make_filelist() starting in line 1087; you need to extract that part and make
it stand-alone, and modify psi/winint.mak where it copy setupgs.exe to
make_filelist.exe to build a it standaline; and also duplicate enough of other
files to make it build standalone.

If your own development resource can supply a patch in the direction outlined
above, we'll review it. Otherwise, it is WONTFIX.
