Oh, yes. The eventlib is a _really_ nice library. I've taken over some it's
API ideas for my non-preemtive scheduler library. And I've some time ago
extracted it out of BIND 8.2 and made it stand-alone (the version in the BIND
8.2 distribution depends on some other stuff in the tree, etc), wrote a little
test program, added GNU Autoconf layer, etc. 

>From my CHANGES entry:

  Changes made by RSE:
  - derived from BIND 8.2's src/lib/isc/
  - merged with heap.[ch], assertions.[ch] and list.h
  - removed references to BIND's port_*.h stuff
  - completely reindented the source code
  - made egcc -Wxxx clean
  - written an ev_test.c
  - written a Makefile
  - added GNU Autoconf environment for pselect() stuff

When you're interested in this stand-alone version, contact me.
