Nevertheless, let me point out for the sake of the archives that the answer was
contained in one of your earlier messages:

The problem is that many of the texlive postinstall scripts run perl scripts,
and these failed as above because rebaseall needed to be run. I guess this
problem will occur whenever perl and texlive are installed simultaneously.
I'm not sure what the solution is. Would it be hard to tweak setup.exe so that
it runs the autorebase postinstall script before running any others? Or would
this be a bad idea for other reasons?
