man 2 accept on my Linux says:
In order to be notified of incoming connections on a
socket, you can use select(2) or poll(2). A readable
event will be delivered when a new connection is attempted
and you may then call accept to get a socket for that con-
So I imagine if you passed the socket as the first arg to Select.hSelect, you'd get what you want. SocketPrim.socketToHandle claims to do the required conversion.
disclaimer: I haven't tried this.
