In a wrong way - unfortunately. The point is not whether the
VGA driver is present or not, but whether it is actually
I propose the following (also anticipating an EGA driver btw):
-set up a new pcdisplay_softcursor() function, preferrably into
 a separate file which is included by the "pcdisplay_softcursor"
 config option
-use pcdisplay_cursor or pcdisplay_softcursor in vga.c:vga_emulops
 depending on that option
-get the conditionals out of pcdisplay_subr.c:pcdisplay_cursor()

btw, why is there that
	scr->pcs.cursoron = 0;
in vga.c:vga_init_screen()?
Shouldn't the screen come up with the cursor enabled?
