   Hello.

Is it possible to enable the kqueue support in erlang under FreeBSD
6.2-STABLE #13? Note says that 5.2 & 5.3 have some problems with kqueue, but
maybe new versions are more stable? At least a lot of software uses it under
FreeBSD without problems... The problem is that ejabberd uses 60% of cpu
under 1000 http-bind connections, and kqueue is known to be a great CPU
saver.

Right now I got the following error:
============== 8< ============== >8 ==============
checking for working poll()... ok
checking whether kqueue() is known to be broken... yes; FreeBSD
implementation
checking whether kernel poll support should be enabled... configure: error:
no; kernel poll support requested but not found
configure: error: /bin/sh
'/usr/local/ports/work/usr/ports/lang/erlang/work/otp_src_R11B-5/erts/configure'
failed for erts
============== 8< ============== >8 ==============
