This is a fine idea but I don't know that I can get my hands on all of
these compilers, certainly not this week or next week (family-related
travel).  Perhaps people who already have them could give it a try?
This test program should be sufficient...

#define _XOPEN_SOURCE 600
#include <signal.h>

extern void do_something(int);

handler(int sig, siginfo_t *info, void *ctx)

compiled with the equivalent of -c -std=c99 and the warnings cranked
up as high as they will go.  I'll push my branch when I get home.
