I didn't know because /usr/include/process.h was still there. Only a
"tar tvf" told me this today. Perhaps we should do:

rm `tar tf <last-cygwin-package-installed>`     # you got the idea
tar xf <new-cygwin-package-to-install>          # here also

at any cygwin package switch? Or at least compare the respective
results of "tar tf". What do you think?

Oh yes, sure. When you have the necessary pieces it's rather easy.
For the record, also perl-5.14.2 seems broken.
