Actually, perhaps I misunderstood you: are you saying that Cygwin does
have ITIMER_PROF defined in the appropriate header, but when setitimer
is called with it, it always fails?  If so, we cannot test this at
configure time, because it means we will have to run a program, which
is not a good idea.

So in that case, I think we should simply disable the CPU profiler on
Cygwin using "#ifndef __CYGWIN__" or some such.

Yes, please.
