Using signal() to set up signal handlers doesn't always do what you
want. A recent upgrade made test 208 fail because wait() was not
getting interrupted by a SIGALRM. Tracing showed that signal() was
being converted to a sigaction(SA_RESTART) handler, which allows
syscalls that return ERESTARTSYS to immediately restart without
returning EINTR to the calling process. The kernel code returns
ERESTARTSYS to signal interruptions while in wait().

Replace the use of signal with sigaction() to ensure that the
SA_RESTART flag is not set and the EINTR is delivered to the process
sitting in wait().  This makes test 208 terminate at 200s again.
