The joys of autconf yet to come...

Any idea where select.h is on HPUX?  (select is a POSIX call so I guess it 
is somewhere?)  I suspect that these issues are likely to be common to 
most network scanner backends so maybe sanei_tcp.h would be the correct 
place for this kind of #ifdef?

What is the arrangement for CVS access?  Should I maintain this backend 
myself as a diff to the most recent major release until it is stable or 
can it be got into the main repository before that?
