I included Eric Blake's [PATCH] Avoid polluting cygwin namespace,
also at http://repo.or.cz/w/libsigsegv/ericb.git
Successfully tested with clisp.

See http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2011-05/msg00000.html

It's a small library for handling page faults in user mode.
A page fault occurs when a program tries to access to a region of memory
that is currently not available.
It is mainly required in clisp for generational garbage collection,
m4 also uses it for stack overflow protection.
