It may be more complicated that that.  Glibc is likely to explode if
this happens, and the headers are sufficiently screwed up that it's
awkward to bypass glibc and call rt_sigaction directly.  I have a test
that does the latter, though, so it's at least possible, but I'm
unconvinced it's worth it just for an error message.
