One thing wrong with the current Debian rc-1.4 package is that it dies on
a ^C - almost totally useless.  This is because the wrong include file was
used for mksignal in the build (should be /usr/include/asm/signal.h).  As
a result it installs no handler for SIGINT it seems.

Personally I always prefer a more verbose sigmsgs.c, viz:

Sigmsgs signals[] = {
        {"",            ""},
        {"sighup",      "hangup detected"},
        {"sigint",      "interrupt from keyboard"},
        {"sigquit",     "quit from keyboard"},
        {"sigill",      "illegal instruction"},
        {"sigtrap",     "trace/breakpoint trap"},
        {"sigabrt",     "abort"},
        {"sigbus",      "bus error"},
        {"sigfpe",      "floating point exception"},
        {"sigkill",     "killed"},
        {"sigusr1",     "user signal 1"},
        {"sigsegv",     "segmentation violation"},
        {"sigusr2",     "user signal 2"},
        {"sigpipe",     "pipe fault"},
        {"sigalrm",     "alarm"},
        {"sigterm",     "terminated"},
        {"sigstkflt",   "stack fault on coprocessor"},
        {"sigchld",     "child stop or exit"},
        {"sigcont",     "continue"},
        {"sigstop",     "stopped"},
        {"sigtstp",     "stop signal from tty"},
        {"sigttin",     "background tty read"},
        {"sigttou",     "background tty write"},
        {"sigurg",      "urgent condition on i/o channel"},
        {"sigxcpu",     "cpu time limit exceeded"},
        {"sigxfsz",     "file size limit exceeded"},
        {"sigvtalrm",   "vitual time alarm"},
        {"sigprof",     "profile signal"},
        {"sigwinch",    "window resize"},
        {"sigio",       "i/o error"},
        {"sigpwr",      "power fault"},
        {"sigunused",   "unused signal"},
