What's the best way to conditionally compile the trio files if needed?
I plan on placing the source files in ncurses/base. A few ideas:
  1. add to ncurses/modules but then they'd be compiled all
     the time (though not used)
  2. hack mk-1st.awk and mk-2nd.awk
  3. modify ncurses/modules at run time with the new trio files
  4. modify ncurses/modules and add teh trio libraries but
     preface them by BUILD_TRIO. we'd then run sed on the file
     before feeding to awk to leave them in or remove them depending
     on whether or not the trio libraries are needed.
