No. 2.1.x should use poll as this is implemented in the kernel. Although,
select is also implemented in the kernel, so there could be a case either way
if most of the file descriptors are usually being waited on.

I sent a test program to squid-dev a while back which would detect if the
kernel had poll in it (as opposed to libc emulating poll). I don't know if
the test is in the configure script for 1.2beta but it probably should be.
