I grabbed this and tried to build it on Irix 5.3, 6.2 & 6.5(.30m).
All 3 platforms report:
checking for correct stack_t interpretation... no

The snapshot also fails to build on all 3 platforms.
This is from Irix 6.2:
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/people/tgc/libsigsegv-2.7-pre1/src'
/bin/ksh ../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=compile cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I. 
-I.    -g -c -o handler.lo handler.c
libtool: compile:  cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I. -I. -g -c handler.c -o 
cc-3316 cc: ERROR File = handler-unix.c, Line = 490
  The expression must be a pointer to a complete object type.

      ss.ss_sp = extra_stack + extra_stack_size - sizeof (void *);

1 error detected in the compilation of "handler.c".
make[2]: *** [handler.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/people/tgc/libsigsegv-2.7-pre1/src'

It fails similarly on Irix 5.3 & 6.5.
