This is a cygwin problem, which pops up every now and then when running
The basic problem is that cygwin tries to emulate posix behaviour on
windows, but the fork semantics is not available and so it has to be
"faked". Sometimes this fails. It seems to fail more often on Windows 7.
Running make files often causes a lot of forks, so it increases the
likelihood of failure.
Please just try to re-run make and see if that solves your problem.
If it repeats and seems to happen at the same place, let us known. If
that is the case, we might find some specific circumstances that makes
it more likely to happen, and maybe we can modify that slightly.
