The truth is that EXP_ALT_BINDINGS now became enabled by default

  --disable-alt-bindings                (define EXP_ALT_BINDINGS)
        Compiles-in an alternative set of line-edit bindings, in addition
        to the default bindings.

but DJGPP makefile was not updated for this flag so "Line edit style"
choise is not available for MS-DOS users currently.
