Its working for me too when running not from rxvt.
actually, the install command succeed, it just rxvt that crash.
I tried also on another XP machine and a Win7 machine, all with same 
results (working perfectly with 1.7.9, but with 1.7.10 rxvt crashes 
while with cygwin.bat (cmd.exe) it works good).

I run rxvt under strace (both with 1.7.9 and 1.7.10) - one log is 
attached here, and the other in the next mail (size limitations).
just run it with g -d and scroll to the end.
