I expected "timeout 0x7fffffff" to be fine (I sometimes use it :x)...

Odd, which patchlevel of 1.8.7 is this?  (more of a curiosity at this
point, see below)

OK, I need to read POSIX manpages more often, not just the Linux ones.
>From the select() POSIX manpage:

	All implementations shall support a maximum timeout interval of
	at least 31 days.

I think I'll just force Unicorn::Configurator to limit that to 30 days.

But, the POSIX manpage also states:

	If the timeout argument specifies a timeout interval greater
	than the implementation-defined maximum value, the maximum value
	shall be used as the actual timeout value.

So isn't OpenBSD wrong in giving EINVAL here?  Unless somehow the large
time_t was interpreted as a negative value...

This happens on newer openssl under Debian, too.  Maybe just switch to
sha1sum.rb since I'm more comfortable with Ruby 1.9 now than I was in
