After downloading both files, and detarring the binary package, I have a few nits
to pick:

1) no Cygwin specific README (that is usually placed in /usr/share/doc/cygwin)
   The directory is there, but is empty.
2) An empty /usr/share/info directory.
3) Does the end-user need (or even want) the include and lib files? Ditto for the
   man3 files.

On a bright note, the package appears to follow the FHS standard in the use of 
/usr/share, etc.
