Oddly enough, I had compiled and installed perl. Bascially, setjmp and
longjmp are broken in netbsd in that setjmp does not return the longjmp
value. I ended up using _setjmp and _longjmp. _setjmp and _longjmp do
nt save the signal information but I did not notice any problems when 
running the test suite.
