It seems that sys/select.h is no longer implicitly included by some

Thanks for the hint, adding an include solves the issue.
It had compiled without because I have a plain extern int select()
declaration. It's obviously not a good declaration because the pointer
arguments can now be 64 bit. (I think I could not unconditionally
include select.h for porting compatibility with some legacy systems that
don't have it.)
Not sure whether it's a bug then as arguably a program using select
should declare it properly. On the other hand this issue has not
appeared on any other system and if traditionally include time.h used to
imply include select.h maybe that should be maintained.
