bug#29666: patch-FYI: fix link failure and suppress a warning

Here are two patches.
The first suppresses a warning I saw when building with
gcc-8.0.0 20171215 on fedora 27. The second fixes a link
failure reported by Jeremy Feusi.

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] build: suppress sig-handler.h's -Wcast-function-type 

* configure.ac (WERROR_CFLAGS): Add -Wno-cast-function-type
to suppress warning about sig-handler.h's sa_handler_t cast:
sig-handler.h: In function 'get_handler':
sig-handler.h:47:12: error: cast between incompatible function\
  types from 'void (* const)(int,  siginfo_t *, void *)'\
  {aka 'void (* const)(int,  struct <anonymous> *, void *)'}\
  to 'void (*)(int)' [-Werror=cast-function-type]
     return (sa_handler_t) a->sa_sigaction;

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] build: link with -lsigsegv, when c-stack module requires it

* src/Makefile.am (grep_LDADD): Add $(LIBCSTACK).
Otherwise, on at least Debian and Arch-based systems, linking would
fail with diagnostics like these:
  c-stack.c:207: undefined reference to `stackoverflow_install_handler'
  c-stack.c:216: undefined reference to `sigsegv_install_handler'
Reported by Jeremy Feusi.
