Yep, SO_RCVTIMEO is not defined in any of my headers. Linux by default
puts all these SO_* files in /usr/include/linux/asm/socket.h which is read
when you include /usr/include/sys/socket.h

SO_RCVTIMEO is not in that file nor any other file, so I have to assume
that doesn't work :)

I just commented the entire section out, doesn't seem to hurt anything :)

Well, set the socket to non-blocking, then use select() to block until
the timeout value. Either that or use alarm() and set the socket to
