Most of the messages are diagnostics to track script progress.  The only
exceptions are the lines below:

./ line 12: ./01bash.bat: No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `./01bash.bat.t': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `./01bash.bat.t': No such file or directory


./ line 8: /usr/X11R6/bin/ No such file or directory

The first set is from (it should probably have a test for the
existence the .bat file).  Also, in-place edits should work just fine
(using 'sed -i -e "/^echo/d; s,REM BASHPATH,$bashpath," 01bash.bat').

The latter message is actually because of a bug in setup -- when it
uninstalls a package, it doesn't take into account the fact that files in
/etc/postinstall were renamed to .done, and thus leaves stale postinstall
scripts behind (like the one from XFree86-bin-icons, which is an obsolete
package).  [Brian, can we put this on the TODO list to fix in setup?]

In any case, looks like all the postinstall scripts ran for you, so you
should be good to go.
