Instead of skipping the test, it would be safer to not provide select.poll() if it's known to be broken. Curl added a check in configure:

The problem is that I understood that Python provides a single binary for all supported macOS versions. So if we go for a check, it should be done as runtime, as the current select_have_broken_poll() test written for macOS.

On macOS without the bug, curl check takes 0.5 second which is not ideal :-/

Would it be possible to design a test which doesn't block?
