Well, according to the buildfarm, "later" is "now" :-(.

If RHEL5 is too old to have epoll_create1, I think your dates for it
might be a bit off.  Anyway, I'll go do something about that in a
little bit.

It looks like it might be sufficient to do "#ifdef EPOLL_CLOEXEC"
in latch.c, rather than bothering with a full-blown configure check.
