Well, that's sort of a chicken and egg problem.  There was no attempts
at GUI *because* there was no touch screen support.

I think Xhpc server might just work without any hacking, as it just
uses only wscons.

I'm also thinking if MicroGUI (or NanoX, i think they merged, but i
forgot how the merged code base is named) or qt/embedded might be a
better choice.

Well, actually hpcsh port still needs my gcc3 hackery to get
committed, as with static only world having GUI is not practical due
to sheer size of all the binaries.  But that's the reason I uploaded a
gcc3 snapshot, so that people have a working and compact dynamic
userland and can try compiling stuff for it.
