You can let generate a Makefile using the -M option,
but that Makefile would then be specific to the system it ran
on (actually “for”, not “on”, considering cross-compiling).

This is done in MirBSD, MidnightBSD and Android currently.

On GNU/Linux targets you would additionally need to provide which is generated by, or better, the
libc should provide a sys_signame[] array. Note that Linux,
kernel-side, has different signal names (even amount of them!)
per architecture, and even libc…

An equivalent autoconf crap would be ten to hundred times
that size, FWIW.

Yes given mksh’s portability requirement.

I wish. Really.

mksh has very few imports, but the system-specific parts
sadly vary greatly across OSes.
