I see. Can you change the code then to something like this:

static bool ignore_sigchild( siginfo_t* info )
     return info->si_signo == SIGCHLD
         && info->si_code == CLD_EXITED
# else
         && (int)info->si_status == 0;
# endif

I have another test case where the parent kills the child. Simply ignoring
SIGCHLD is probably the best (as otherwise there have to be too many
preprocessor directives added)?
