One problem that underlies several different bugs is that
file_util.copy_file() needs some reworking in some way.  Bugs #479469
(File copy fails on True64 AFS file system), #425007 (Python 2.1
installs shared libs with mode 0700), and #220993 (Installation flaky
with multiple installers, old versions) all seem to demonstrate
problems in that function.
