The culprit is not _LOCORE but COMPAT_16, from cvs history for ARM signal.h:

 signal.h  1.9   2 weeks  joff   Always expose struct sigcontext instead of just #ifdef COMPAT_16.

Maybe this didn't make it to 2.0? So either updating or declaring COMPAT_16
during Kaffe's build should help.

Btw, not that I'm completely sure, but _LOCORE is only defined when building
standalone (such as a bootloader) or low-level kernel code, to shield off
standard system environment where it might interfere.
