I have another version of <sys/poll_impl.h> with the #if              
defined(_KERNEL) on line 62. (from Solaris 8 MU6)                     
This file is still wrong.                                             
                                                                      
However, the bug will only affect c++ users and will not affect       
building Erlang.                                                      
                                                                      
Thanks for letting me know.
