Thanks. Can you explain what your change does though? The file you patch
(wscript) is not part of libev, so either it doesn't matter to libev at
all, or it fixes up something that libev misdetected (I don't know how
node embeds libev).

OTOH, this is clearly related to HAVE_CLOCK_SYSCALL, but the definition of
this symbol is completely optional, so it shouldn't really matter how it
ends up (in fact, it can be autodetected using header files).
