  Yeh, but it helps to create a real directory to back up a mountpoint,
because that avoids a warning message.  And setup.exe is /supposed/ to create
them:  see do_install_thread in install.cc:

  for (i = 0; Installer::StandardDirs[i]; i++)
  {
    std::string p = cygpath (Installer::StandardDirs[i]);
    if (p.size())
      io_stream::mkpath_p (PATH_TO_DIR, "file://" + p);
  }

const char *
Installer::StandardDirs[] = {
  "/bin",
  "/etc",
  "/lib",
  "/tmp",
  "/usr",
  "/usr/bin",
  "/usr/lib",
  "/usr/src",
  "/usr/local",
  "/usr/local/bin",
  "/usr/local/etc",
  "/usr/local/lib",
  "/usr/tmp",
  "/var/run",
  "/var/tmp",
  0
};

    cheers,
