Yeah, that was about where I got stuck. Somehow the way the
temporary install directory is created for the Windows build
shoves everything in a single directory (you don't get this if
you do a normal Linux install -- that has separate bin, docs,
icons, etc subdirectories). This gets even worse with the single-manual
documentation because all the files for the manual are then in
that same directory too :-(

I don't think I can really get this to work with the single-manual
documentation setup as qemu.nsi stands in master. So my plan is
to just commit the single-manual changes (probably next week some
time) and then we I'm happy to help with the Windows installer
changes necessary for the manual part once it's basically working
