Found this one, finally. Turns out it was a simple typo in configure.in;
it was checking for FD_SETFD rather than F_SETFD. The bug only triggered
on systems without FD_CLOEXEC, which is set under glibc but not with the
libc5 headers and older Linux kernels.
Will be fixed after my patches that I'm working on now are rolled into the
current build system.
