One possible cause may be that you have patched the system. Everytime a
system header changes, the gcc installation may become incorrect.

gcc copies a number of header files at installation time, and modifies
them. If the system header changes, gcc's copies won't simultaneously
change. You have to reinstall gcc, to invoke the "fixincludes" process
again.

It also may be that some header changes outright break gcc, so that even
a re-installation won't help (e.g. when Sun manages to break a system
header so that gcc cannot fix it).

Notice that reinstalling gcc won't tell you what the problem is. I
advise you to study the preprocessor output in more detail, to find out
what sys/signal.h got replaced with.

Regards,
Martin
