I looked further into this one and figured it out.  Line 1 of
/etc/postinstall/ is

    /usr/bin/pango-querymodules > /etc/pango/pango.modules

but there was no /etc/pango directory.  That was apparently what the

    /etc/pango/pango.modules: No such file or directory

was trying to say.  I just created that directory and now
installations from setup.exe complete without that pop-up message.
