well, I could try to disable signal.h completely, and then see which 
sources fail, and within these make sure that arch/private comes always 
1st (but this would still not work with Watcom and other compilers which 
dont allow redefines), or we could always 1st inlcude apr.h to get the 
APR_HAVE_*, then in the middle the sytem headers, and finally 
arch/private and undef 1st all macros which need redefines ...

or someone has a better idea??
