Apparently it's now too standalone - Travis complains that mingw now fails:

domtop/domtop.c: In function 'print_cpu_usage':
domtop/domtop.c:229:15: warning: unknown conversion type character 'l'
in format [-Wformat=]
         DEBUG("now_params=%llu then_params=%llu now=%llu then=%llu",
domtop/domtop.c: In function 'do_top':
domtop/domtop.c:268:22: error: storage size of 'action_stop' isn't known
     struct sigaction action_stop;

so at least domtop.c was actually depending on gnulib fixing printf and
providing sigaction.  Rewriting the printf uses to favor PRIu64 might
help, but I'm not sure how to work around missing sigaction.  I'm trying
to reproduce the mingw cross-build locally, rather than iteratively
hammering through more Travis tests, and hope to post a fixup patch
later today.  It may be that I go back to my earlier plan where some of
the examples link against gnulib (but in that case, it will be just the
tests that need it, rather than all the tests).
