Uhm, It seems very very unlikely that it will break anything at all.

The only thing SA_SIGINFO does is change the signal handler prototype (two more arguments are passed to the handler instead of just the signal number). 

As you can see on my patch, the two signal handlers - pipe_handler() and exit_handler() - never use these two additional arguments. So removing the SA_SIGINFO flag has no consequence whatsoever.

Well, actually, they are. I've sent all the needed patches to the BTS, including this one. E17 runs on GNU/Hurd with these patches (and note that the SA_SIGINFO patch obviously does not break ecore/e17 this badly, since I had no problem using e17).
