Subject: [boost] [config] problem with sys/select.h on Linux/Unix
From: Iain K. Hanson (iain.hanson_at_[hidden])

boost config seems to be indirectly including sys/select.h on Linux.
This causing me a problem in my sockets library where I have my own
declarations of select, fd_set etc which cause duplicate symbols errors.
No only can I not use config but also any boost lib as they all use
config :-(.

Can someone please suggest a fix for this?

Out of curiosity, why does config use select.h?
