Thanks for the feedback; remarks inline.

Package: bash exit code 1

I think the problem is that virtual /dev is a read-only filesystem,
but if you make a real /dev directory; then you can write to it.
Could you run 'mkdir -p /dev' (without the quotes) and then try
rerunning setup-x86_64.exe?  I suspect this will work then.

The base-cygwin script usually creates the /dev dir.  Do we have
a dependency loop which let run before base-cygwin?

The only package that depends on base-cygwin is cygwin itself, and neither depend on bash.

Package: a2ps exit code 2

This is due to a missing papersize(5) file.  I'm working on a fix,
but a workaround is to run the following command, then rerun

echo letter > /etc/papersize

I'd prefer `echo a4 > /etc/papersize' ;)

I suppose you would. :-) Any idea how to provide a sane default that most people on both sides of the pond would be happy with?
