Yes, that's the ``info handler''.

While printing something on SINGINFO arrival is a nice idea, it may not
be extremely useful for make(1).  With dd(1) this is very useful to see,
but with long-running make jobs that write tons of output to stderr any
information from SIGINFO may be lost in the noise.
