Thanks for sending me your setup.log.full.  It looks like this is still 
the same fontconfig problem.  The log is full of messages like the 

/usr/share/texmf-dist/fonts/type1: failed to write cache

As I said in March, I think you need to start a new thread, probably on 
the cygwin-xfree list, and make a full report (including cygcheck 
output) about your problem running fc-cache.  Until you solve that 
problem, every postinstall script that calls fc-cache is going to fail, 
and setup.exe will keep trying to rerun it at every install.

I'm sorry I can't help more, but I'm not a fontconfig expert, and I 
don't know why fc-cache is failing.
