Cygwin [/usr?]/sbin/create_etc_xml_catalog.sh script provided by libxml2 and run
by both postinstall scripts if present:

$ cat /sbin/create_etc_xml_catalog.sh
if [ ! -f /etc/xml/catalog ] && [ -x /usr/bin/xmlcatalog ] ; then
	/bin/mkdir -p /etc/xml
	/usr/bin/xmlcatalog --noout --create /etc/xml/catalog

$ cat /etc/postinstall/libxml2.sh
[ -x /sbin/create_etc_xml_catalog.sh ] && /sbin/create_etc_xml_catalog.sh

$ cat /etc/postinstall/fontconfig_dtd.sh
[ -x /sbin/create_etc_xml_catalog.sh ] && /sbin/create_etc_xml_catalog.sh
if [ -x /usr/bin/xmlcatalog ] ; then
    /usr/bin/xmlcatalog --noout --add "system" "fonts.dtd" \
	/usr/share/xml/fontconfig/fonts.dtd /etc/xml/catalog

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
