builtin?

builtin is the default, and is extremely portable. Also optimized. The
builtin is based on select(2) and limited to 1024 file descriptors. This
is fine if you use default config.

libevent is more capable if you want to config a large number of
filedescriptors.

libev is faster, unbound is about 5% faster. Libev signal handling is
different from libevent, unbound currently does not handle that.

I recommend the builtin. Which is why I made that the default :-).
