SLang has supported mouse under DOS since a few versions back. I
commited a patch to John E. Davis.

But it doesn't. Lynx is *not* blocking in getxkey(), but someplace else.
I'm trying to find where, but the code is so hard to follow. I tried inserting
a "tcp_tick(NULL)" at the start of the while-loop in mainloop(), but that
didn't help. I need to find the point where Lynx is blocking waiting for
keypresses. It used to be getxkey(), but now it seems it's no longer called.
I'll check it out.

I didn't ran configure. I used my own makefile.

One way is to run with "-wdebug" and look at the file
for activity when Lynx is idle.
