Huh? The move of process.h from /usr/include to /usr/include/cygwin
was a deliberate move. The header only declares the Cygwin-specific
spawn familiy of functions.
So, here are two questions:
- Since you *knew* that the process.h header had moved for a month
(after all, it is "as for every snapshot"), why didn't you say a single
word that this may result in a problem with building gcc?
- Why is that such a big problem? Changing process.h to cygwin/process.h
should work, right?
