neon-0.25.5/NEWS:

| Changes in release 0.25.3:
| * ne_lock() and ne_unlock(): fix cases where NE_ERROR would be returned
| instead of e.g. NE_AUTH on auth failure.
| * Prevent use of poll() on Darwin.
| * Fix gethostbyname-based resolver on LP64 platforms (Matthew Sanderson).

If Neon cannot use poll(), then it must use select(), which has
an intrinsic FD_SETSIZE limit. GNU libc on Linux defines
FD_SETSIZE as 1024; perhaps it is the same on OS X.
