It isn't.

It's a build issue.  I've declared those in scope for 3.11.

I think it would be a nice win to have PPS support working on any non-Linux.

I've pushed an SConstruct change that should fix this if your analysis
is correct. It clears pps only if pps is set and neither timepps.h nor
TIOCMIWAIT are available, and it does include sys/time.h where you
suggest. The resulting build passes regressions here.

Thanks, that's nice to know. Maybe you'll even have PPS working soon!
