That's the new header blessed by Single UNIX Specification v3.
Implementations [as in "implementation of the standard" = OS product]
are allowed to still declare select in sys/time.h, and most probably
do so in order to preserve backward compatibility.

If you want your program running on current "real" systems, use
sys/time.h. If you want it portable "according to the spec", use

It is not clear which one is more preferable right now. In the long
term, sys/select.h is the way to go, but probably quite a few "legacy" OSes in
wide use are lacking it.
