Actually its not critical for Postgres but I was going through the tutorial
in the Postgres .chm help file where this directory was mentioned.
And it specifically said "If you installed a pre-packaged version of
PostgreSQL"(see the first mail) which made it look like a bug.
Nevertheless, I have downloaded the source and I got the tutorial directory.
I just thought someone else might not have to go through all the trouble so
I posted a mail.
