	Following the install notes for how to run postinstall from the
	install sets says:

           mkdir /tmp/upgrade
           cd /tmp/upgrade
           pax -zrpe -f /path/to/etc.tgz
           ./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` check
           ./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` fix

	However doing this we get an error when postinstall tries the obsolete

	obsolete check:
	postinstall: Can't find program "/mnt/distrib/sets/makeobsolete"

	Run the postinstall script after following the install note commands

	Probably should add the makeobsolete file to the share package
	and then do as we do for postfix (check somewhere in addition to
	the default location).
