Major editing is less common.
Creating all-new Makefiles from scratch on anything as venerable as  
even after major source surgery, is a bit puzzling - at least to me.

Would it be unreasonable to ask for a recap of the changes
before the full-body is sent anywhere?

How are you doing? I've looked on what changes there are for the version  
differences between 5.4 and 5.1. They've removed or implemented any of the  
methods which have /* not implemented */, added more functions (wide  
character support, screen manipulation, and much more). Its well worth the  
upgrade, but I feel it very inefficient how I've re rewrite the makefiles  
from scratch just because I don't have 3 hours just to write makefiles. I  
want to hack the generated makefile in the build, but I know it wouldn't  
be accepted because its not standard.

Heres a link to the NEWS in CVS
code-exec dot net slash ncurses-5.4 slash NEWS
all modifications since 20000708(5.1 Release)

I'm still waiting patiently on joerg to complete Wide Character support  
for DragonFly. *smile*
