Slang compiles correct and works correct. I use slrn as news reader and
this works without problems. Both, slang and slrn, are compiled with
MingW32 so I think my slang is OK.

If you may give me a hint, where (file and function) to find the cursor
(arrow) handling, I may give it a try and dive in the code.
But I don't like to (and don't have the time) to find the correct file
and function myself. I thought it is in LYMainLoop.c, but there are to
many #ifdefs than I could figure out within 5 minutes. So some hint
would be appreciate.

Mentioning 2.8.4, I tried to compile it but the compiler fails on
LYMain.c, line 1298 complaining about an undefined 'LYNX_CFG_FILE'.

And finally, if I don't get slang working,

Thanks for your help
