It wouldn't be easy - would require a lot of duplication of scripting
(or rethinking how the makefiles are setup).  Note that curses.h is
different (a superset, but still different), so it would have to generate
includes into a different location, the *.awk scripts would be rewritten
to provide various flavors, etc.

hmm - to answer the inevitable question, automake wouldn't help...
