Sorry, I must have come to the wrong conclusion.  I had thought that
since Cygwin by default installs man pages to /usr/share/man
installing the MinGW specific man pages in /usr/man as long as they
were prefixed with 'mingw-' was OK.  This allows users to do a 'man
mingw-dirname' without having to modify their MANPATH.

If it's desired that they not be included, I'll produce an updated
release with them removed.
