Actually, I tried that, and then got GCC complaining that
"scm_ia64_longjmp: function does return" - which is wrong, but I guess
occurs because the declaration (in a system header file somewhere) of
setcontext() does _not_ have __attribute__(noreturn).

So I've committed for now without this SCM_NORETURN change - but I'm
happy to update it if there is a further solution.  Is there a way of
adding __attribute__(noreturn) to a declaration (from a system header
file) that should have this attribute, but doesn't?  Also, can it be
done in a way that will work for compilers other than GCC?
