Do you mean to write your own software to create the CAB? If so, this is an explanation which uses the CAB SDK (from Microsoft, of course)
http://www.mischel.com/pubs/grab_a_cab.htm

If not, could you explain your reasons for not wanting Makecab.exe ? It might help understand what kind of solution to provide you with.

Hey Paul,
That site link didn't work, it may possibly be broken. Could you possibly post the code in the forum?
