It is run by the maintainer script of the package - post-installation
and therefore on the final device itself, by dpkg --configure (part of
the normal dpkg process that is postponed until after the rootfs is
decompressed onto the final device by the Emdebian systems.

./emsecondstage invokes dpkg --configure which runs the postinst
scripts for packages of the rootfs.

NOT install it on any other board.
