Sure, send it to me. You could also look at the pbm gs driver code (gdevpbm
I thinh). Since you know how pbm works, I think it would be a simple task
for you to modify the pbm gs driver to output to a ggi target... Who knows?
Anyway, vgalib emulation on my laptop never worked. There's something with
vgagl, I don't know. Maybe I should give it another try.

A GGI replacement for the X library (display opening & pixel & text drawing
routines) would do the trick automatically. But that's a big task, and afaik
not on the wish list of anyone with time to do that :( I too am waiting the
day I can do without X. Alt-Fn works wonders, but I still need to see dvi,
ps, and do secure transactions in sites with frames...
