Well certainly you can be useful (by providing information).  Most of
this process simply involves obtaining information - often takes more
time to do that than make changes. (Not always of course). For instance the changes I'm making for lynx (stalled for the moment to work on xterm)
will be only a few lines - but finding them takes many hours.

Anyway - what would be useful would be to know if there are other
header problems with the _POSIX_C_SOURCE defined as in the 2.8.6dev.11
code.   Your platform might be able to compile the IPV6 support - but
the headers might not work.  Same with compiling against wide-character
ncurses (though most of the impact there would likely be in building

For lynx, if you add --enable-ipv6, does that build?

For ncurses it's more complicated - you'd have to apply the rollup patch
and see if
        configure --enable-widec
configures and builds.
