Cygwin packages already use /usr/doc, and that's where we can put the
README's for mingw packages. I don't see any problem of pointing to the
larger source package (that's the case for say GCC RPMs for RedHat Linux
for example -- the binaries are split among many packages, with a single
source RPM).
