Oh, I see.  I didn't realize from the start that utils.xml is also split
into multiple html files now.

Yes, that sounds right to me...

Hmm, no.  The cygwin package comes with the PDF and HTML files under
/usr/share/doc/cygwin-${PV}, the cygwin-devel package with the files


(and an undesired usr/share/man/man3/2.0.3.gz, which I only now see.
 Oh well)

In theory these man pages as well as the other doc files would be
ideally bundled with the cygwin-doc package at one point.

For the time being, I look into excluding the utils man pages in the
cygwin package.
