With that hint, I read the XML::SAX documentation, and it seems you are 
correct:  all XML::SAX parser drivers need postinstall and preremove 
commands to handle registration of the driver in XML::SAX's 
ParserDetails.ini file.  I have added a function to cygport git to 
handle this, rebuilt perl-XML-SAX accordingly, and built perl-XML-LibXML 
to provide a more robust driver; look for these in the next 64bit upload.
