I will suggest the opposite approach. <signal.h> and signal() are part

not K&R compilers, but do these actually exists anymore?). Therefore,
there is no need for HAVE_SIGNAL / HAVE_SIGNAL_H.

Actually most K&R C environments had signal.h too, although signal()
doesn't always work on non-Unix-like systems. sigset() and sigvec() are
another matters, and signal() may have SYSV or BSD-style semantics...

Probably if you don't have signal.h you're porting to something without
signals (an embedded system perhaps??)... so a conditional include still
sounds sensible, although "configure" won't work on such platforms...
