[mythtv] automatic backtrace on crash

I was just thinking that it ought to be possible to catch the sigsegv
signal and produce a backtrace for the log automatically, when I read
the article on eCrash in the September issue of the Linux Journal.  It's
a library for using the backtrace() functions in glibc when a program
crashes, with options for dumping multiple threads.

Incorporating something like this into Myth would make it much easier to
generate useful crash reports.
