   You may be confusing "GNU" with "portable".  They're not even
similar.  All the GNU-autojunk in the world does me approximately no
good at all.  sys_select.in.h, sys_socket.in.h, and the like, are useful
only if someone can turn them into actual header files, and on VMS, I,
not some GNU-autojunk, am the one who would need to do it.  And, as I
said, I don't even have a convenient way to use a "sys" directory
(without wrecking access to existing <sys/XXX.h> stuff).

   Obviously not, or we wouldn't be having this discussion.  For Wget
1.13.4 on VMS, I added these modifications to src/connect.c, because, as
I recall, the argument that HAVE_SYS_SOCKET existed for some reason was
unsuccessful.  I never understood why, so I thought that I'd take
another run at it this time.  Perhaps my mind is simply too weak for
this stuff, but I can't help thinking that if the #define directives for
HAVE_SYS_SELECT_H and HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H in the generated src/config.h
are correct, then actually using these macros to guard the relevant
#include directives should be harmless, at worst.  But what do I know?
