Getting consistent permission denied errors on postinstall of

It appears to be oversight, out of a well-intentioned attempt to
protect script generated reference files.

There error as it appears in setup.log.full:

2022/08/26 11:39:07 running: e:\cygwin-x86_64\bin\bash.exe --norc 
--noprofile "/etc/postinstall/"
/usr/bin/ln: failed to create symbolic link 
Permission denied
/usr/bin/ln: failed to create symbolic link 
Permission denied

The directory permissions are:

$ ls -ld /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/directory-hash/
dr-xr-xr-x 1 joebloggs Domain Users 0 Aug 26 11:39 

I've experienced this on two installs, both where I run setup exe with
