Description

As discussed on the ML, Pextlib's InstallCmd() (xinstall callback) ignores errors that occur setting the requested or default permissions. That's probably not a good idea; the attached patch adds error handling that's near-identical to handling fchmod() errors elsewhere in the same file.

I have not removed the patch hunks that add a verbose (-v) mode to xinstall, you can take them as a FYI.
