Does "--nsock-engine select" stands for a compilation option
(but I didn't see it in ./configure --help) or an argument tu
nmap command (not seen in nmap -h) ?

It's an nmap command line option. Surprisingly, it's not there in 
nmap --help, but "man nmap" mentions it:

       --nsock-engine epoll|kqueue|poll|select .
           Enforce use of a given nsock IO
           multiplexing engine. Only the
           select(2)-based fallback engine is
           guaranteed to be available on your
           system. Engines are named after the name
           of the IO management facility they
           leverage. Engines currenty implemented
           are epoll, kqueue, poll, and select, but
           not all will be present on any platform.
           Use nmap -V to see which engines are
