Glenn said that you made cygwin fixes that enable _lib_vfork in
I have only _real_vfork enabled.
Have these fixes not yet made their way into cygwin?

However, I have both _lib_spawnveg and _use_spawnveg, so SHOPT_SPAWN is
used for sh/xec.c even if it has not been explicitely defined before.

So, yes, I'm building ksh with spawn support and it works fine.
