Just signal.  For some reason SIGSEGV seems to work correctly unless
it's trapped.  I really don't understand why.

I've already checked in a patch to fix it.  It was an extremely simple

This will affect people trying to configure libstdc++.  I don't know
how many other programs trap things like SIGSEGV and SIGFPE.
