I committed a slightly different patch earlier today:

Note that regardless of the platform, <stdio.h> is required in order to use
::snprintf and all of <sys/stat.h>, <sys/wait.h> and <sys/time.h> is
required to use ::select, so while it *may* be compiling on other platforms,
it's kind of by accident, and these headers should really always be included
when using those API's.

HTH, John.
