Hmm...  Ok, so I decided to try ./config.status --recheck --recurse in
the i686-pc-cygwin/winsup directory.  That didn't help.  Also executing
configure in the top build directory will remove all configuration files
from the i686-pc-cygwin/winsup directory. :0

The way things are setup the only solution for obtaining configuration
in a new subdirectory is to execute ../src/configure.  Perhaps the top
level Makefile should reexecute configure instead of `config.status
--recheck'??  Or the top level config.status should be made to remove
the winsup configuration files from the winsup subdir?
