It seems I spoke too soon, now it setup.exe hangs on the 
/etc/postinstall/ script. The installation seems incomplete. For 
example, the "ls" command doesn't work.

So it seems that whatever was going on with the preinstall scripts is 
also happening w/ th postinstall scripts, but now I don't have a 
functioning environment in which to run them by hand :-(
