New bug in gpc-20010502?

Hi Frank et. al.

A new bug (or incompatibility) seems to have crept into the latest gpc 
snapshot. In rts.c, in the function _p_SelectHandle(), there are these 
  #ifndef HAVE_SELECT
  (void) readfds;
  (void) writefds;
  (void) exceptfds;
  if (n) return -1;
  _p_SleepMicroSeconds (MicroSeconds);

Well, each line, except the call to _p_SleepMicroSeconds() causes an 
error when compiling gpc for Mingw. Basically, I have had to comment 
out each troublesome line. I am not sure whether the problem is in that 
code or in the 'configure' script for the RTS or whether it is a gremlin 
in my system.

Best regards, The Chief
