  The signal(3) man page is not the standard.
  So, if I understand, GMP isn't meant to be portable (since you don't
  want to support systems that have their own features, like Mac OS X).
Exactly right.  GMP is portable in a very restricted meaning of the
word.  It is meant to run only on sensible Unix-like systems.  It does
not run on bricks, some Macs, or toasters.  But it does run without a
hitch on the G3, G4, and G5 Macs here, as it turns out.
