When configuring for tty only (or maybe even when just using XEmacs
21.2b32 on a TTY), you can not use any kill or yank commands, as
they abort with some error message about missing clipboard functions.
Loading select.el fixes the problem.
select.el is conditional on (with-feature window-system), which seems
to be wrong, as even on a TTY select.el is required. Should we remove
the conditional and make sure select.el is always loaded and dumped?
Yes, we should dump it unconditionally. Looking at the
code, I think the author wrote the code in a way that it can
be dumped with no window-system environment.
