Off the top of my head, I don't know.  Usually only a change to
child_info.h should affect CHILD_INFO_MAGIC.  Unless the preprocessed
output of gcc differs for some reason.  You might want to compare the
output of gcc4 vs. gcc5 when called from cygmagic.  In general it
doesn't make sense if an identical structure definition results in
different checksums dependent on the compiler.  If push comes to shove
we have to change the cygmagic script to make sure the output fed to
cksum is independent on the compiler used (which I though it is, oh well).
