You're not the first to try it under FreeBSD; I think Jim tried it a
while back, but that was before use of poll was added. I don't think
anyone has run it on FreeBSD since then.

I'm surprised that FreeBSD 3.1 doesn't have poll in libc_r. If so, I
think it's the only barrier I can think of to running the hybrid
server on FreeBSD, but I personally haven't tried the code on that
platform yet.

No one has talked about implementing select in the hybrid server, but
APR emulates (or will emulate) the poll call with select().
