[ID 20010702.006] config.h comments for HAS_POLL incorrect
Message ID:
This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.33 running under perl v5.7.1.

[Please enter your report here]

config.h states 
 "You may safely include <poll.h> when this symbol is defined"
when HAS_POLL is defined

 *      This symbol, if defined, indicates that the poll routine is
 *      available to poll active file descriptors. You may safely
 *      include <poll.h> when this symbol is defined.
#define HAS_POLL                /**/

My old libc5 system didn't have /usr/include/poll.h but
configure still created HAS_POLL

later in config.h the variable I_POLL was not defined

/* I_POLL:
 *      This symbol, if defined, indicates that <poll.h> exists and
 *      should be included.
/*#define       I_POLL          / **/

and one can see that "ext/IO/poll.h" doesn't try to include <poll.h>
unless both HAS_POLL and I_POLL are defined.

Perhaps the comment could be changed to read
  ... You may safely include <poll.h> when this symbol && I_POLL is defined.
      I_POLL is defined elsewhere in config.h ...
