Is the intention for this to replace the current procps package, or to be an alternative?

If the latter, that leaves us wanting a way in setup.hint to indicate that two packages conflict, else you can have the implementation ping-ponging between the two depending on which one is most recently updated, if you have both installed.

That should be left out.  It doesnât do anything on Cygwin.

That doesnât seem to do anything.  I just get zeroes.

Thatâs not showing my login.  Iâm not sure if itâs useful on Cygwin.

All of this should be separated out into procps-ng-devel and libprocps-ng1 packages.

See the attached expat.cygport file for an example.

What is that supposed to do on Cygwin, exactly?

All I know is that sysctl -a spammed my terminal. :)

Other than that, good job!  The only item above that is an absolute blocker for a GTG from me is the devel packaging stuff.
