It's the definition in ptrace.h which is the problem, since it conflicts
with the application's own definitions (Xen userspace in this case). The
names are in the "applications" namespace (i.e. not prefixed with _) and
it hasn't included any headers which are defined to cause those names to
be used.

I'm not sure which (if any) spec includes ptrace.h but signal.h isn't
defined to #define PSR_FOO. Maybe the real bug is the signal.h ends up
including ptrace.h at all?

Ubuntu Raring multiarch cross thing, which is gcc 4.7.2-22ubuntu3 and
glibc 2.17-0ubuntu4.
