To fix the xfree-icons thing:
 Launch setup.exe from BASH, e.g.

$ /install/setup.exe --no-md5
(NOTE: I've mounted the parent of "local package dir" as /install)

 Select to "Install from local directory"
 Leave ALL other things at "default", just go on clicking "Next"

 This will make the /etc/postinstall/ script do its job,
without fuzz.

I will be investigating the problem as time permits. No promises though.
