Hmm. Ok. Except a quick grep of /usr/include shows that select(2) is
ONLY defined in <unistd.h>, and not <sys/select.h>. I looked in the CVSweb
and it appears to be the same.
$ egrep -rn -E -e "int\W*select\W*\(" *
sys/sysctl.h:162:#define KERN_NSELCOLL 43 /* int: select(2) collisions */
unistd.h:186:int select(int, fd_set *, fd_set *, fd_set *, struct timeval *);
