False alarm. InstallOptions.dll is part of the NSIS installer. Due to the usefullness and small size of these DLLs, some malware uses them as well. Not knowing that it is a legit DLL, av vendors mark them as malware as well.
Please update your signatures and if it's still not fixed, please contact avg support.

Sourceforge has actually started putting replacement installers which seem extremely suspect to me. See attached image.
