I am sorry to have missed this one.
Excuse me for describing my problem earlier as vaguely as "does not work".
The problem is I actually didn't know how to use it. That post really
clear things
up for me.

Great! the latter works for me too on either of the three above I tested.

There's one problem with the NS-build, the menu of text-mode of NS-Build
is like this:

     File Edit Options Tools Lisp-Interaction Buffers Services Help

The Services menu is empty(I think it is not of much use on text-mode)
So while cycling through the menu with right char (tty-menu-next-menu)
tty menu exits when it reaches Services thus  Help can not be reached
except using left char to go backwards.

I see.

With GPM mouse it works on modeline,  if the mouse is over the modeline,
there're tips showing on the echo area and mouse click do bring up the menu.
One problem I found so far:  say I stay at a fundamental mode buffer and I
click Fundamental on modeline => Edit => Goto => Goto-Line, then the
focus(point) is on the buffer not on the minibuffer that prompts for input.

Also with GPM, click on the top menu  it gives:
      <nil> <mouse-1> is undefined

It would be great that the top menu can be brought up by clicking as the
modeline does.
