a while ago you guys implemented a select() fix for interix 3.5 (thanks
again ;)). now i was surprised to see the same issue come up again (it's
there since a while now again, just had no time to dig into the problem).

i now had some time to look into it, and i discovered, that select is
only rpl'd when sys/select.h is missing, which is not the case on
interix 3.5. i guess it should also be rpl'd if REPLACE_SELECT is set by

atm i'm using the attached patch to fix coreutils again, until this is
fixed in gnulib. is the attached patch ok as it is, or do you need
something different/more to be able to add this to gnulib?

the original thread is here:

Cheers, Markus
