Yes, I already had the util-linux source on my HD from looking at the 
source to kill. The problem is that it doesn't ./configure properly since I
(obviously) don't have linux/foo includes. I'm thinking of taking just the
essentials for branching a Cygwin-only 'more' package. Actually, I'd like to
start out with that and then generalize it into a 'GNU more' with long-opts,
--version, etc. I'll see about contacting someone at about it. I can
GPL formerly BSD'd code, right?
