wingrass: during install generating font configuration file fails

Description

Installing winGrass 6.4.1.RC2-1 on winXP

During installation, generating the font configuration file (run_gmkfontcap.bat) fails because %GISBASE%/etc/fontcap file already exists. (Have wondered for some months why the command window that opens during winGrass installation then closes with a beep.)

In addition, the pre-existing fontcap file contains font locations (e.g. c:/osgeo4/....) that don't exist on a standard Win XP and winGrass 6.4.1 binary install.
