The install worked OK (but took some time) on 32bit.  On 64bit I get these

[from install via setup.exe]
/usr/bin/mandb: warning: /usr/share/man/man3/PDL.Config.3pm.gz: whatis parse
for PDL.Config(3pm) failed
/usr/bin/mandb: warning: /usr/share/man/man3/PDL.Doc.Config.3pm.gz: whatis

/etc/postinstall/ line 12: 30760 Segmentation fault      (core

[running it again manually]

The second abort happened earlier than the first.

Running "mandb -c" again...
