Hi Frank,

I hope you don't mind,  I created msvcrt-1.0.1-6.tar.bz2, which consists of:

(a) An updated o4w_env.bat so that it is portable, meaning OSGEO4W_ROOT is
no longer hardcoded and is calculated at runtime. 

It uses `pushd` instead of the old variable substring syntax which makes it
easier to understand and also adds the ability to run from a UNC path
(\\server\share\osgeo4w). Pushd will map a drive letter automatically if
none exists for the parent path.

(b) removed textreplace step of install because (a) means there's nothing to

I've not promoted it to current because `osgeo-setup.exe -t
http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/setup_test.ini` gives me an error: 

In-use files detected
Unable to extract /bin/ -- the file is in use.

Please stop all Cygwin processes and select "Retry", or

select "Continue" to go on anyway (you will need to reboot).
Retry   Cancel   

I hope this is just my system it doesn't like?
