I know there are lots of such postings "Resource temporarily unavailable".
But using lates snapshot (2011-08-03): there are changes by C. Faylor printing
cause of fork failure.
I can see I'm going to regret exposing these errors.  They have been there
for a couple of months but they were strace only.  I just made them more

This. Is a recording.

rebaseall and peflagsall should fix the problem.

After rebaseall and peflagsall, I will get the following errors while running
"make -j ...."

*** snip snip snip *****
abnormal program termination
C:\TEMP\ fork failed: no child processes [1]
*** snip snip snip *****

Any other hints?
Did you reboot? Windows won't notice the changes made by peflagsall until you do so.

Also, you never mentioned what you are making. Are you, by chance building an app which builds helper binaries and/or lots of shared libraries? Apps such as emacs, gcc, and perl are a few examples.

BTW, I don't recognize that particular error message. CGF, does it mean anything significant?
