  Agreed, but an abrupt termination due to segmentation fault,
  a bus error or a bad asm instruction is a crash... unless
  the signal is trapped to handle the problem in a clean way.
  Wouldn't this be a nice fix?
Please look at the code.  Setting up signal handling seems risky,
and will likely cause more breakage than it fixes.

If you have a specific suggestion, please don't hesitate to write
a patch for me to look at, though.

All the configure stuff is, as you surely are more than aware of,
a tiptoe dance act.
