Archlinux package does install man pages and info pages of gawk.

I did check the readme and found some information useful for a packager  
(like targets for printing manuals in different formats) , but nothing 
that stands out to me as useful for normal users.

What information in the readme do you and OP feel is useful and not 
available through man / info pages ?
