That appears to be a bug in mingw-get. It seems to assume that all
licence elements will have the component value "-lic", but gdb doesn't.
It actually has per-release <licence/> and <source/> elements, and the
<licence/> element is actually the -doc component.

Yeah, I don't understand that, either.
Once again, thanks for the report.
