You don't really need these.

The lines in the postinstall scripts involving desktop-database and 
mime-database were added by cygport, not by me.  The errors are harmless 
and can be ignored.  If/when this becomes a regular package installed by 
setup.exe, you won't even see the error messages except perhaps in some 
log file.
