Files in /etc missing after new install

/etc/postinstall/base-files-profile.sh.done worked, both other scripts
mentioned had errors:

/bin/uname: not found
/bin/cygpath: not found
Unknown system type ; exiting

and

/bin/mkpasswd: not found
/bin/mkgroup: not found

Even though all files exist in /bin (with .exe ending). It seems to be a
permission problem of some kind because if I do a ls -l in /etc I see this:

bash-2.05b$ ls -l /etc
total 114

Attached is the output of cygcheck -svr.

Best Regards,
