I am not sure where signed bit fields stand in the current
definition of the C language, but I do have some knowledge
of PCC, having recently constructed a PCC-based C cross-

PCC allows you to generate a non-standard compiler.  For
example, there's a flag you can set which makes long bit
fields ok.  Consequently, the fact that an implementation
of PCC lets you do something doesn't mean it's kosher C.
