Hm. It shouldn't have changed all that much, but there's one important
difference: You need version 2.1 or later of readline (necessitated by
the event-handling in the new graphics).

I need to get it in place on our Solaris machines as well, so I'll be
finding out the exact details soon. Will get back with what I find out.
