Rather than using a shotgun approach across rpm versions, compare
lib/psm.c in whatever you are calling rpm-4.1 against what is in
rpm-4.1.1 and/or rpm-4.2 at

Hmmm, solaris, yes, problem is that solaris has different sigaction
structure, the handler is initialized incorrectly. Fixed in both
rpm-4.1.1 and rpm-4.2.
