Are those still using pthreads or are they using APR-threads now?  I would
rather see the signal check moved into APR, so Apache doesn't even have to
think about it, personally.  Then, Apache just uses ap_signal and assumes
it works.

I am also not sure that pthreads implies everything Posix works.  It is
possible to be POSIX compliant in one area and not compliant in another.
And, some platforms get certain Posix checks waived.
