Ok, but assuming I still want to go ahead and port PDCurses, where do
I start?  I'll need to create a Makefile (autoconf simply won't do,
IMHO, to cross compile) and somewhere I need to put the screen
painting code for AROS.

Not sure, though I think I have a version that was supposedly ported
to Amiga once, the code might be a lot more complicated, or something.
It probably depends on which version is easier to compile.


P.S. The console support in AROS is currently very broken, so I might
give up, or fix it.
