RE: permissions (and other) problems

Posix standardised signals not ANSI C. Posix uses
sigaction() and friends.

There is also the pre-posix signals on old Unix API,
signal() etc.

Atleast on HP-UX there are both pre-posix and posix signals.
If you mix them your code breaks is subtle ways.

APR is essential to hide this mess and allow portability
across Unix let along the none Unix OS.
