Hmm... Interesting. Does it fail to compile?

I think it shouldn't be too hard to fix that, since in the final analysis
the SO_RCVTIMEO value is mostly just used as a glorified global variable
to set the socket lifetime in the comm_connect_addr() function in
[patched] comm.c line 546.

What do you think a good alternate approach might be? Maybe a little
FD_ENTRY variable to hold the connect timeout for that descriptor?
