mutt-1.4-1 has broken <F1> help

Hi Gary,

pressing <F1> in mutt typically opens a pager with the mutt manual
in txt form.  This file is typically found in the shared documentation
directory, so the right place for this under Cygwin would be


as long as mutt hasn't been rebuild to put it under /usr/share/doc/...

Unfortunately, manual.txt is not available at all in the Cygwin release
and even if it were available, mutt wouldn't find it.  Pressing <F1>
in Cygwin's mutt results in:

  /usr/local/doc/mutt/manual.txt: No such file or directory
  Press any key to continue...

Would you mind to have a look into that?
