Well, I'm still missing how the broken signal.h got into /usr/include in
the first place. :-) with -D is NOT supposed to put anything in the real /usr/include.
So nothing should get there until you install the completed build. Since
it was a broken file, the build should have never completed, thus it
should have never been installed.


The reason we have destdirs is so that exactly what has happened to you
doesn't happen.

Take care,
