[zeromq-dev] disabling epoll()

Hi list. I'm experimenting with zmq for various uses, one of which is on
an arm9 linux 2.4 kernel. I finally got everything to cross compile, and
now (running the first server example in the user guide) I get:

Function not implemented
epoll_fd != -1 (epoll.cpp:40)

Which I think is because my lib C supports epoll(), but at run time it
determines that the kernel does not (man epoll says it was added in 2.5.x).

I found some comments about how zmq will use epoll "when available", which
makes me hopeful their is some configure switch to turn it off. Or is this
a lost cause?
