compat: Add sigwait dummy for NaCl

Implement a sigwait dummy for NaCl, which relies on:
- NaCl does never send SIGPIPE to to apps (see

- VLC uses sigwait exclusively to wait for SIGPIPE

If sigwait is asked to wait for anything else than SIGPIPE it will run
into an assertion failure, so that breakage would not be silent.
