Ok, done.

The information currently contained in readme.1st is most important for
DOS/Windows users. Linux users that have one of the binary RPMs installed can
completely ignore the information in this file. For this reason, I don't think
that readme.1st is as important as announce.txt.

And, I do assume that a user who is not able to recognize a doc/ directory as
source of valuable information will get lots of other problems soon. The doc/
subdirectory *is* located in the top level directory, so it is as visible as
the proposed readme.1st in the top directory.
