No.  There are some packages in the tree currently that do that but it
is not correct.  I've changed the wording.

I think this is implied by:

	* Binary packages are extracted in /, include all file paths from the
	root in your archive.

Actually, this should be:

/usr/doc/cygwin/cURL-7.9-1.README
or
/usr/doc/cygwin/cURL-7.9.README

Actually, this is correct.   This should be a file.
