I am not an MSVS expert, but my previous MS C/C++ work has had
no problem using the signal library, which was in any case borrowed
from Unix, so I don't think this will be a problem.  The only signal I
really need is SIGALRM for the time slicer.

Those who have compiled it had misc. header files to adjust, but
nobody has so far complained about signals.
