[Resummited to cygwin-apps on request of Igor]


the build-script of the smartmontools package creates the 
"Cygwin/package-*.README" file from 
"srcdir/CYGWIN-PATCHES/" by replacing VER/REL with the 
current version/release numbers.

This might be useful for other packages to avoid extra editing of README 
on each minor release.

A patch for generic-build-script 1.43 is attached.
