Could I get you a cup of coffee? :)

The hard issue isn't the "select" function prototype (just a warning).

The hard issue is "nanosleep" needs a "struct timeval" definition in
order to make the "select" call and a redefinition error occurs when
"winsock.h" follows "unistd.h" in the same compile.

I've posted a message to Jim Meyering, you and usual CCs in thread we
started on "bug-gnulib".

Option was listed *just* for purposes of having a complete list. :)

I haven't forgotten no matter how much I might wish I could!! :)
