Hi Ronald,

This was in the FAQ at the the cygnus website.

Where did the man/info pages go?

In order to save space and download times, we have stopped providing the
man/info files for the tools with the binary install
since we are not yet providing a man page or info reader. Both types of
documentation are available in a tar file available from
the project ftp site. Or consult the online documentation over the WWW.

Hope this helps.
Liam O'Keeffe.
