Concerning an adequate fix, I have no idea. Frankly.

Concerning a workaround, here's one that should work painlessly :

untar a clean perl source tree,
once Configure is run, edit the file,
find 'sig_num_init' and 'sig_num' and replace -1 by the appropriate value,
  (the one in your .h headers),
regenerate config.h (by running config_h.SH)
make, make test.

The resulting perl should work. Then, make install.

The INSTALL file may have more information about tweaking
(or the Configure gurus around there may correct me if I'm wrong.)
