Thanks for the heads up.  I have just committed a fix.

I think the intention here was to drop the part of the sentence that
refers to the systems without SIGINFO, as that's not relevant.  There
were two promblems though, part of the sentence that should have been
commented out wasn't, and the nroff comment syntax that was used to
comment that sentence out was not entirely correct.
