I was touching both so I will wait.  We could move the FAQ info into the
docs but in a way the FAQ_MINGW doc file is referenced by both
pginstaller and by the docs, so merging it in might not make sense, and
it does have totally platform-specific stuff that might appear too large
in the official docs.

Right now in my current patch the idea is that in installation.sgml we
point them to FAQ_MINGW or FAQ_CYGWIN and from there they would get the
tools they need and return to the official install docs to complete the
job.
