Your PC is one of those that doesn't accept that '/bin/cygpath.exe' is used
in a specific way during installation.
It has been discussed a lot lately, search for the cause has been initiated
and continuation is imminent.
To fix this problem for the time beeing - do this, from a bash shell
$ cd /etc/postinstall/
When you press enter on that the task that was meant to be done during
installation will be completed.
To make it not bother you more, until next time it gets 'installed' you can
$ mv XFree86-bin-icons.sh XFree86-bin-icons.sh.done
Google on something like "site:cygwin.com inurl:ml +cygpath +hang" to read
up on the subject.
