I looked into this at the beginning of the week for something else I'm
doing, and the INSTALL script is called twice, once with PRE-INSTALL,
once with POST-INSTALL.  The DEINSTALL script is also called twice,
once with DEINSTALL and once with POST-DEINSTALL.  I have no idea why
the arguments are inconsistent, but it's not possible to change them
