Hi all,

I'm using bash 3.1 on interix. There fork() may fail with EAGAIN if e.g. several builds (configures) are running in parallel. Unfortunately, fork() isn't retried and configure stops.

So I suggest adding this patch to bash which retries fork() when it fails with EAGAIN. Idea is from pdksh. At least 3.2 doesn't have such a patch, I didn't look though all the patches after 3.2, however.
