Each file should be installed to the location described in the
corresponding README, so that it autointegrates with the IDE.

I would expect that the most common use of gmqcc is to *compile*
QuakeC code. The syntax files and the pdf produced by the tex file
would only be useful to someone who wants to *write* QuakeC code.
I would expect that most users are compiling code because they are
writing their own, but it is possible that this is not the case.
Ultimately you are free to package this how you like, and since the
syntax files and pdf are small it will not cause any heartache for
them to be installed unnecessarily. It was just a suggestion.
