This looks good.  I'm just wondering... on one hand the code seems to
have nothing Cygwin-specifc and could be packed as an external package
like any other POSIX tool, on the other hand I can see how it belongs to
the Cygwin utils given that getconf on Linux is part of glibc.  I'm
inclined to stick it into utils for the latter reason.  Chris?  What's
your stance?
