I tried updating from HEAD and compiled on W2k and Win95.  I then ran and 
reinstalled  gcc-mingw and inetutils.  I still got a command window which I 
believe was before the install (and was actually doing the uninstall - but I 
think it said postinstall) and then it did the install and then no other 
windows (just "create icons" in the task bar and as a title on the current 
window then installation complete.  

I then tried the above patch for the progress bars and the different thread and 
reinstalled same two packages - I saw the .sh files change to .sh.done but saw 
no difference in the screens from the first time I ran.  No progress bars or 
difference in windows.  On either machine. :-(

Just thought I would give you an update but I need to play with this one more 
and look at some code and see if I can tell if it is working and where it 
should be working.
