Here's the relevant bit from config.log:

configure:25492: checking for asm/sigcontext.h
configure:25499: result: yes
configure:25384: checking asm/signal.h usability
configure:25397: gcc -c -g -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes  conftest.c >&5
In file included from configure:25465:
/usr/include/asm/signal.h:27: conflicting types for `sigset_t'
/usr/include/sys/select.h:38: previous declaration of `sigset_t'

I don't know why kaffe wants to have a kernel header (asm/signal.h) at all. I
thought that userland apps should not play with kernel headers. since I don't
know what it does, I don't want to touch it :)
