Why should upstream follow Arch's rules when installing? It is the responsibility of the Arch maintainer to provide the README file in the right place -- when it is useful, as in this case.
As others have stated, the README contains information only relevant for people who build awk, but not so much for the end users.
Moreover, Arch mostly tries to distribute software with little or no modifications to the original source (unless absolutely required to make it work). So if upstream chooses not to install the README as part of `make install`, I don't think it's the responsibility of the Arch maintainers to change that.
