I've just tried this on RISC OS 5 installed on RPCEmu on Windows using
HostFS and the installation seemed to work correctly.

!PackMan shouldn't have a problem with it's interaction with hostfs as
it treats it the same as any other filing system.

I have seen problems previous on Windows where hostfs couldn't deal
with a character in a filename which caused problems.

If you go onto the PackMan advanced menu from the icon bar, there is
a view log option. Go into it first time to turn the log in. Run your 
and then after it fails go back to that menu option and it may show you
some more useful information on what went wrong.

After I had installed it I tried to build the C++ examples with GCC and
they failed with:

g++ -mlibscl -O3 -o template_scl template.cc
/tmp/ccfdiE8p.o: In function `_GLOBAL__sub_I_ip':
template.cc:(.text.startup+0x98): undefined reference to `__cxa_atexit'
In function `__static_initialization_and_destruction_0':
undefined reference to `__cxa_atexit'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [template_scl] Error 1

The C examples compiled OK.
