Here is the package that obsoletes procps. I have repackaged it and
added a few fixes
that are specific for Cygwin based on changes to the latest version of
procps. Let me
know if there are any problems with this build.

I plan on doing more work to try and make the package more useful in the
Windows environment, but this is just an initial port to get started.
