Then I guess the configure-time test for setitimer should also test

I'd be glad to give this a try, but I don't have any experience writing
autoconf macros.  Is there a standard macro to test whether a function
accepts a particular argument?  If not, can you (or anyone) point me to
an example that I can imitate?

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.

Done as commit 5fac0de.

  Also, the diagnostics should be improved, as the
wording is misleading in that case.

As it stands, profiler-cpu-start reports "Invalid sampling interval"
whenever setup_cpu_timer fails to start the timer, regardless of the
reason.  I'll try to improve this.

Yes, please.
