If it overwrites it, then I have packaged it wrongly. It should put ps.exe

PLEASE do not differentiate between /bin and /usr/bin. This caused no
end of trouble during the early days of setup.exe when setup didn't
*always* follow the mounts. Granted, setup is much better about that
sort of thing now, but don't tempt fate.
There's no need for separate /bin and /usr/bin on cygwin.
(I don't care about the procps/ subdirectory, but I doubt others will be
very happy about it. cf. netpbm packagin discussion on cygwin-apps)
