Thanks Paul.

Do you think it would be possible to make each signal name a special target
for a future release of gmake?

For example, I believe Ctrl-C is "SIGINT".  So you could have:

        @ echo "Interrupt signal received"
        @ <commands to clean up launched sub jobs>
        @ echo "exiting"

I'm not sure how feasible this would be within some future make, but I think
it would make a good feature.

It's simple enough to do from within the code, but there's no way to do
it from within a makefile.
