We'd not exactly be dropping support for B20.  I built PostgreSQL
7.0.2 on it using both cygipc 1.03 + patch and 1.07.  It's just that
the instructions for building on 1.1.4 are much more straightforward.
Instructions such as "get a copy of libcrypt" are obsolete.
Presumably 7.0.3 will be even simpler.

Some sort of hint is needed for those who want to use B20, e.g.
pointers to the mail archives and an old copy of faq-nt.
But no more than that.
