Yes.  Currently the "configure" test to check whether an appropriate
version of the various .NET tools is installed is not sufficient.

In fact we deliberately install the .NET support as the last step of the
installation.  So all of the other parts of the install have already completed.
If you get an error during the installation of the .NET versions of
the libraries, and you don't need them, you can just ignore the error message.
