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?
