Oops, maybe this works (only tested on GNU/Linux):

--- a/run-command.c
+++ b/run-command.c
@@ -675,7 +675,7 @@ int start_command(struct child_process *cmd)
 		 * we catch a signal right before execve below
 		 */
 		for (sig = 1; sig < NSIG; sig++) {
-			sighandler_t old = signal(sig, SIG_DFL);
+			void (*old)(int) = signal(sig, SIG_DFL);
 
 			/* ignored signals get reset to SIG_DFL on execve */
 			if (old == SIG_IGN)

Otherwise, maybe just casting to 'void *' is OK:

			void *old = (void *)signal(sig, SIG_DFL);

			if (old == (void *)SIG_IGN)
				...



void *old = signal(sig, SIG_DFL);
