How do you deal with last minute information that needs to go into a Readme

We use the InstallShield product which provides the user with the option of
viewing the Readme at the end of the installation so, as far as I know, the
Readme must be included in the build. Therefore, if the Readme changes
(which it often does), a new build must be generated (and subsequently
tested). Is there a way around this?

On a similar note, what should the Readme contain? The Readme I am
currently maintaining contains information that should perhaps go elsewhere.
For example, it includes installation/upgrade instructions along with
platforms and software supported, known issues, etc.

Thanks in advance for your help.
