actually lynx will also build/run with the 5lib version of curses on SunOS
(when we say SunOS, I'm assuming 4.x, not Solaris).  Occasionally I run
test-builds with the native K&R cc and it runs.  The 5lib curses does
underline/boldface, but no colors.

(both ncurses and slang require an ANSI compiler or gcc to build with)
