Error using autoconf 2.57 (checking argument types of select())

I tried to configure fvwm 2.4.16 and got the follwing message:

checking for sys/select.h... (cached) yes
checking sys/socket.h usability... no
checking sys/socket.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: sys/socket.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: sys/socket.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: sys/socket.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
configure: WARNING: ## ------------------------------------ ##
configure: WARNING: ## Report this to address@hidden ##
configure: WARNING: ## ------------------------------------ ##
checking for sys/socket.h... yes
checking argument types of select()... configure: error: can't determine 
argument types

I'm using autoconf 2.57 on solaris 5.9.

I reported this error to the fvwm-mailing list as you requested in an archived 
answer to this problem. But they answered to me the following:

> Huh? We are using the stock AC_FUNC_SELECT test. If that fails,

Is there a chance to come around this bug with an older version? I'm not able 
to just comment this test out, this will not work.

Any help would be appreciated. 

Kind regards, Reto
