That explains a bit more!

libeio is bundled within perl-IO-AIO at Fedora

and is built as a private lib.

I've tried to find out why there haven't been any libeio releases to download,
although it's at version 4.18 already. The home page says it's Beta. The cvs
snapshot contains doc files that refer to libev (that one is at 4.15), which
is a separate package (also at Fedora). The source also bundles ecb.h, which
refers to libecb from the same author. That's "libecb" at Fedora.
