the 'NEWS' file makes it clear the release is source only, so 'README.bin' could
simply be deleted.  the 'README' and 'README.md' files are, essentially,
identical. suggest updating the 'Dependencies' and 'Generating configure..'
sections in 'README.md', and rename that to 'README'.  the 'README.unix' too
needs some updating (from v3.6); I think that file will become (more) relevant
again (cf X support).

the 'ChangeLog', 'AUTHORS', 'COPYING', 'NEWS', and 'README*' files ought to
"migrate" to the archive's top-level directory.


regards, jr.
