There is no such file in the postgres.tar.gz tarball distributed in the PostgreSQL source tarball which is where those docs come from. There *is* a file (LEGALNOTICE.html) containing the PostgreSQL version of the BSD licence - this is linked from the index of the PostgreSQL docs which includes the standard:

"Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and its documentation for any purpose, without fee, and without a written agreement is hereby granted, provided that the above copyright notice and this paragraph and the following two paragraphs appear in all copies. "

Which I would suggest we are fully complying with.

These files are currently built using the Microsoft HTML Help workshop, however we intentionally ship docs that match the current supported version of PostgreSQL (as supported by pgAdmin) so that we know that the context sensitive help etc. will be as expected. We wouldn't want it to try to using a pre-installed 7.2 version of the docs for example.
