    build: Don't install COPYING · ef15cadb

    $datadir/doc or $docdir is not necessarily the right location to place
    the COPYING file. Some distributors might want to install it somewhere
    else. eg., Fedora RPMs [1] mark the license text with %license which
    puts it under $datadir/licenses. Currently, such a distributor has to
    go out of its way to not have two copies of the files.
    
    As a data point, GLib doesn't install its COPYING file either.
    
    Users can still see the license from the application's about dialog.
