Yes, this is pretty bad atm.  I'm not sure why I did things this way in the
first place.  I think perhaps I was concerned about that I didn't know the
license terms for those files and didn't want to get stuck with manually
updating them.

Perhaps it would be better to simply remove these files, and I should just
create a package for cygwin containing these files, and then make that a
build-time requirement?
