The reason 'make install-all-headers' went away is that we made a policy
decision to install *all* the headers. I don't think the Windows
packaging should be second-guessing that. It would be reasonable to
have an option to install *none* of the headers, for people who aren't
going to be doing any software development, but if you do install them
please don't be selective about it.
(FWIW I wasn't personally in favor of that decision, but it's a done
deal now --- having some packagings follow it and some not would be
the worst of all possible worlds.)
