Does anybody know what it would take to get the Linux/SVGALIB version of
DOOM to run under NetBSD?

I tried running a few minimal SVGALIB applications (with the svgalib
shared libraries copied from a linux machine) but got
"this is not a graphics-capable console" types of errors.
ktrace shows each program opening /dev/console and attempting an
ioctl on it, failing with an Unknown Error.

Any advice?  Is this part of the linux emulation not finished yet?
If so, any idea what kind of effort it would take to get it working
(I would be willing to help out)
