Don't you mean dosbox? Fortunately, we don't all run Lunix :)

Anyway, I tried to compile doscmd just yesterday on 4.0_RC5, but it
complained about what appear to be style errors -- not C99 compliant?
Whatever the case, we do seem to have a MAP_FIXED now; I'm cc'ing
pkgsrc-lusers so someone can remove the relevant notice from the Makefile.
The latter also hints at issues with objcopy, but I'm afraid I'm rather
clueless at what they would be...

Unfortunately, Dosbox works even less well with a screen reader than does 
running the things natively in the XP command prompt.  For some reason, SDL 
applications have a lot of trouble with that in general, as do OpenGL and 
whatever the heck else they have now.  Low-level graphics access is no good!
