Does this version incorporate gpm mouse on the VC versions wpe/we ?
I have found the gpm patch to 1.4.12 and incorporated the guts of that
and the glibc patches RedHat had in their srs.rpm for redhat 5, and 
fixed up the the makefile.in and configure to arrive at a gpm-capable
wpe that uses makefile.in and configure like god intended, instead
of the static Makefile that comes with the gpm patch. It works out
of the box now on RedHat 5 (Linux95?) including all 16 colors and pc 
characters without using we-term, and the makefile will not erase an 
exisiting xwe/xwpe if you make install just we/wpe.  
I'm so pleased with the result I hate to ditch it, but I like 
wpe and so am glad to see it being worked on again finally.
