On an x86 Solaris 11.4 system, the standard procedure build of python from source fails to build the 'select' module. Make install then fails upon trying to import 'select'.

In the make output, while gcc is building 'select', these errors are printed:

@RobHammann it should be resolved now, please feel free to re-open issue if you get into trouble (I manually tested on solaris)
