[pgpool-general: 131] Healthcheck timeout not always respected

Hello pgpool community,

When system is configured for security reasons not to return destination
host unreachable messages, even though health_check_timeout is configured,
socket call will block and alarm will not get raised until TCP timeout

Not a C programmer, found some info that select call could be replace with
select/pselect calls. Maybe it would be best if PGCONNECT_TIMEOUT value
could be used here for connection timeout. pgpool has libpq as dependency,
why isn't it using libpq for the healthcheck db connect calls, then
PGCONNECT_TIMEOUT would be applied?
