unless we also provide an alternate code path (with select?) for
platforms that lack poll() the recent changes break the testsuite on
Windows because:
1) WSAPoll() as equivalent to poll() is only available on Vista and
later [1]
2) WSAPoll() seems to have bugs [2]
3) MSYS has serious problems running on anything later than WinXP [3]
4) WSAPoll() does currently not yet appear in any MinGW headers [4]

therefore I have stopped all my recently added MSYS/MinGW autobuids
because they are now useless since the testsuite cant run anymore, and
for verifying compilation the Linux-based cross-builds are good enough.
