I've built menu.a okay, but hit a snag with WINDOW struct being
defined differently in ncurses and PDcurses. Could I perhaps build
PDcurses with ncurses' WINDOW? Or does ncurses needs WINDOW
from PDC? If so, it doesn't have _line[] etc.

Also I don't understand why curses.h has to be generated.
Why couldn't the termcap/key stuff be included as normal?
Now I just merged curses.head and curses.tail into curses.h 
and hand-edited it.
