Why then would it stop only the final directory getting created?

When I installed the package on a new 2.9 installation it had to load
5 or 6 packages. The first 4 or 5 packages all created directories and
it was only the final one that did not. When I installed on a new 2.10
installation it created all 5 or 6 directories and completed the
installation successfully.
