This is ActiveState perl, so I was wrong in my first guess. I'm still
suspicious that it's the root cause of the trouble though; if any of the
setup.exe post-install scripts rely on perl, they are liable to invoke active
state perl instead of cygwin perl, and break when it fails to understand
cygwin-style POSIX paths.

Hmm, peculiar. May need some more thinking time over this. Precisely how did
you set it? If you do it using the PATH command in a DOS prompt, that wouldn't
affect a copy of setup.exe that you launched from explorer, you do need to set
it in Start Menu / Settings / Control Panel / System / Advanced / Environment
Variables. Try setting your PATH to nothing but these entries:
and see if that helps any.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
