Have you tried manually executing /etc/postinstall/
It looks like a simple script.
The manpage states that error code=3 is due to xmlcatalog failing to add an 
entry to the catalog.
This is what happens in Linux when you issue the command, and most
probably, also the expected output in cygwin:

# xmlcatalog -v --noout --add "system" \ 
  ""; \
  /usr/share/xml/libglade/glade-2.0.dtd /etc/xml/catalog
0 Parsing catalog /etc/xml/catalog
/etc/xml/catalog added to file hash

Catalogs cleanup
Free catalog entry -//OASIS//DTD XML Catalogs V1.0//EN
Free catalog entry
Free catalog entry -//GlobalTransCorp//DTD XML Catalogs V1.0-Based Extension V1.0//EN
Free catalog entry
Free catalog entry
Free catalog entry /etc/xml/catalog
Free catalog entry

Failing that, you can also try to run xmlcatalog with the -v flag, to see if 
that spots the error.
If you finally succeed, don't forget to rename to
