It's been around 11 years since I last used a mainframe, and I used to
work for a mainframe manufacturer.  Even at that time, we used x3270
to access them, and so I doubt that I'll have any opportunity any time
soon to try to relive that period of my life.

I agree with smb - let's move this to pkgsrc and be done with it.
