As far as actual gameserver implementation goes, you'd better ask on the
Linux GameTome:

As for the other stuff, ROCK doesn't implement that stuff itself, but uses
the implementations of those things to create an Operating System.

So, basically, the answer is yes. ROCK has all the common stuff from SDL
to libevent.
If somethings missing, adding it should be fairly easy.

Hope that helps,
