libpango1.0_0-1.32.5-1 postinstall error

Sun Jul 28 14:45:00 GMT 2013


While installing the latest cygwin 1.7.22-1 x86 I found 
that the 'libpango1.0_0-1.32.5-1' postinstall script 
caused an abnormal exit in setup.

An excerpt of the setup.log file follows:
2013/07/27 17:07:30 running: E:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe 
--norc --noprofile "/etc/postinstall/"
2013/07/27 17:07:30 abnormal exit: exit code=1

This is attributed to a missing '/etc/pango' directory:
     /etc/postinstall/ line 1: 
/etc/pango/pango.modules: No such file or directory

While I have manually mitigated the issue for my 
installation, for a long term solution I recommend that 
the '/etc/postinstall/' script be revised to 
first create the directory before attempting to 
populate the pango.modules file.

Kind regards,
