But then, we'll have to keep at least the programming interface for a
while - for compatibility.
(svgalib DOOM compatibility in particular, and X)

As I wrote, this was not introduced "now". It was always installed
in /usr/include/machine.
(In either case, one has to invoke "make" from i386/isa/pcvt/Util
separately, it is not done by a global build.)

How about moving pcvt_ioctl.h now to dev/isa/pcvt? The driver
files can follow step by step when they are merged again.
The utilities/examples should go to usr.bin/pcvt, shouldn't they?

best regards
