PackageMaker - postinstall script is not running
Using PackageMaker v3.0.1 with Mac OS X v10.5.8, I am trying to create an installer package that copies two file to a new folder and then runs a shell script. The folder is created, the files copied, but the postinstall script does not run. How do I know you ask. I replaced the contents of the postinstall script with the lines below and the text file was not created. Looking in the installer's log I find nothing to indicate an error or even an attempt to execute the postinstall script.
echo "we were here" >> /test.txt
The script's execute bit is set and I believe the permissions are set correctly. If I browse through the contents of the .mpkg package I find, buried deep within, the postinstall script. BTW, if I CD to the folder in which I find the script and type ./postinstall the text file is created successfully.
I have run out of things to try and appreciate any assistance you can provide. I've attached to this post the installer's log file for those interested.

Try something that doesn't require file-system permissions, like:
say "Go away before I taunt you some more."
