In cases where the README is important enough to be part of the
package, we tend to install it to the docs directory with a name
of README.Slackware or some sort.

I personally don't see much benefit on our end of including all
the build files in the package - we're not providing these scripts
with the intent of a base for others to redistribute packages from
them -- while that's certainly acceptable, it's up to the person
doing the redistributing to provide full sources and build tools
for the distributed packages.
