After installing this patch, the bootstrap in the pm3-base port still
fails. I installed pm3-base from the 6-STABLE package, and it isn't
able to compile any of the other ports. I suspect the reason for the
latter is that it is new enough to use sendsig() and not osendsig().
This makes sense because osendsig is a COMPAT_43 function and the binary
is a lot newer than that.
To preserve the "kludge" ABI as much as possible, I think it would be
necessary to move the assignment to sc_err into the if-else block that
checks to see if the signal handler was installed with the SA_SIGIFNO
flag, and to make the same change in sendsig(), osendsig(), and
freebsd4_sendsig(). This will break the wine port unless it uses
As an alternative, I've got a set of patches to pm3-base to get it
working on -CURRENT. It wasn't too hard to fix the bootstrap to use the
"undocumented 4th arg" to the signal handler that is mentioned in
i386/include/sigframe.h. The rest of the patches change the low-level
Module-3 code to use sigaction() with the SA_SIGINFO flag instead of
using a mixture of sigaction() (without SA_SIGINFO) and sigvec().
I'll post the patches for testing once I've had a chance to clean them
up some more.
