I can understand having a retry feature for version control steps,
since that involves a network connection over a potentially unreliable

However, when you are building, it should be deterministic. Check
around for possible causes for the "fork: Resource temporarily
unavailable" error. You will probably need the error text leading up
to that. There are a few suggestions relating to heap sizes, but you
might have some luck with running "rebaseall" from ash or dash (see
the comments in <cygwin>\bin\rebaseall for more info).
