Given that our only occurrence of such a warning was in the signal  
module and that newer gcc version (<4.2) seems to have a better  
heuristic before spewing this warning, I believe the proper fix is to  
do a sample compile test program and disable return-type conditionally.

But eh, do we really want to spend more time in configure checking for  
-Werror attribute...
