Yes, they *do* differ between linux targets. Usually this is done
to make it easier (once upon a time) to cross-host binaries from the
"native" operating system. For instance, alpha-linux has the same
signal numbers as OSF/1; sparc-linux has the same signal numbers as
Solaris; mips-linux has the same signal numbers as Irix.

Then why is there not exactly one a-intnam.adb and why don't we
force all systems to have the union of all names on any system?
Failing that, this requirement makes no sense to me.
