Both of those scripts use /usr/share/doc/cygwin-doc and
/usr/share/doc/cygwin-doc/html.

The postinstall script looks for /usr/share/doc/cygwin-doc
and exits with error level 2 when it does not find it.

A search of the 64bit package listing finds no files in
/usr/share/doc/cygwin-doc or /usr/share/doc/cygwin-doc/html.

So either the scripts need to be updated by removing the
cygwin-doc directory, or the scripts need to create the
directories and the packaging of cygwin-doc needs to put
the appropriate files there.
