Good. I was going to check later, and you just saved me the check! :-)

Patch? ;-)
I'll look at adding it. Thanks for pointing it.

Yes, PDcurses is in there already, but it's in the mingw32 scripts. I already
suggested moving it to the companion libs, and it's on the TODO list.

Basically, the companion libs were intended for the host, not the target, while
PDcurses is definitely for the target. But in the end, there are a bunch of
companion libs, both for host and target, and there is no hard reason for

That tree is definitely a mirror of the CVS tree. The CVS tree is considered
the real upstream, and I'd rather base the scripts on the real upstream (no
