FWIW, I don't have manpage for getpriority on my system, and the search of
Cygwin packages turned out nothing, so I have no idea which package
contains it. That being said, the usual solution for this problem is
"cd /usr/share/man/man2 && ln -s getpriority.2 setpriority.2", which goes
into the postinstall script for the package (whatever it is).

Try "find /usr/include -type f | xargs grep -H PRIO_PROCESS".
