CVS does not compile because of warnings about local variables
possibly being overwritten by a call to longjump (or sigsetjmp,
can't remember).

IIRC, when I forced i386 to use the sigsetjmp method, it would
get crashes in the same way as ppc, so I'm guessing this is
a problem on potentially all non-i386 architectures or non-glibc
systems.  (I.e., systems without makecontext(), etc.)
