Even if you set do a #define FD_SETSIZE 10 before the header files, the value is going to overwritten in your header file because somewhere in your header files, you will have a line like #define FD_SETSIZE 64.
I think the only way to change it is to change the header files.

BTW, why exactly do you have such a requirement? Maybe the problem could be solved some other way.
