identifier "SIG_BLOCK" is undefined

Dear all,

I have problems building Cmake 3.11.2 with Intel 17up5 compilers. The same build with GCC 4.8.5 works without any issues. So it looks like this is something specific to Intel compilers, as opposed to being a bug in CMake config/build.

Error I have are:

59 errors found in build log:

Hi,

Can you try to compile this small test case? I didn't see any problem on my machine.

$ cat t1.c

#include <stdio.h>
#include <signal.h>

int main()
  {
    sigset_t tmp, tmp1;
    sigprocmask( SIG_BLOCK, &tmp, &tmp1 );
    return 0;
  }
$ icc t1.c -V -O2

I confirm the problem with building cmake. The reason for that is that some time ago cmake started adding flag -std=c11 instead of -std=gnu11. With -std=c11, the compiler (as it apparently should) defines __STRICT_ANSI__, which stops the preprocessor from defining the macro SIG_BLOCK when processing signal.h. The argument of the developers of cmake is the following: "Intel does not support a 'gnu11' standard flag, only 'c11'." I couldn't find anything regarding -std=gnu11 anywhere in the compiler's documentation but the flag with this value is actually accepted and obviously respected by the compiler. Thus, the question is whether -std=gnu11 is officially supported.
