That is probably not appropriate.  Interix really is a Unix compatible
environment, with real ELF-like shared objects, and has no access to the
Win32 subsystem or Win32 DLLs.

The error here appears to be lack of an appropriate #include; in this case,
it's missing <sys/select.h> (and expecting "some other system header" to
include it automagically, which is wrong).

I'll create the appropriate patch and fix it.  Fortunately there is already
an autoconf check for <sys/select.h> in the package.
