Procps only for sysctl, and sysctl is not working on Cygwin anyway.
I'll create a new procps package which omits sysctl entirely.

As for sysvinit (and potential others), I'm not exactly keen to add
another hardcoded mount /usr/sbin -> /sbin or some such.  Perhaps
we should simply disregard /sbin and see to it that no new package
installs anything into it.
