I see a few problems:

- /usr/bin/libusb0.dll should be /usr/bin/cygusb0.dll to follow the
  Cygwin library naming convention.

- Is it necessary to keep the .sys file in /usr/bin?  I'd rather see this
  in a directory which is not in $PATH usually.  /usr/lib, maybe, or

- Why is libusbd-nt.exe in /usr/bin if it is actually copied to
  /WINDOWS/system32?  And *why* is it copied to /WINDOWS/system32 at all?

- Where is the documentation in the binary package?  The README files in
  /usr/share/doc don't contain any information about how to utilize
  libusb.  No man pages?  No info files?  No html manual?
