Re: GNU Screen


I've been able to compile screen-3.9.13 before with the attached patch.
I didn't test the resulting binary too much, though.  Just compiled the
whole thing again today (with gcc 3.2) by untarring the source tarball,

$ patch -p0 < screen-3.9.13-cygwin.patch
$ autoconf
$ configure
$ make

Hope this helps,
