I'm one of those who do use this kind of `hack` in sbcl. However the
sbcl code here would be broken in squeeze if __FreeBSD_version was set
to 8 as it made assumptions about SIGNAL handlers based on this that
IIRC were based on libc stuff (squeeze glibc targetting FreeBSD 7 ABI or
something). This might be misuse of the macro and I don't care that much
if it's set in glibc or not, just wanting to mention.
