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/Xfree86-bin-icons.sh script do its job,
I will be investigating the problem as time permits. No promises though.
