Is this what you are looking for?

http://www.csl.mtu.edu/cs4411.ck/www/NOTES/signal/install.html

I have never tried to make sensible use of SIGFPE in particular...
http://www.cs.utah.edu/dept/old/texinfo/glibc-manual-0.02/library_21.html
gives some reaons why this is problematic (also in info under libc).
This is one reason why a Numerical Computation workgroup formed shortly
after ratification of C89, but I don't know how the results of their
efforts fared in C99.
