hmm (I don't have problems finding curses libraries - but I'm biased).
Offhand, the only real build-problems I've had are

        a) some very old Linux's (I have Slackware 3.6 on an old machine)
           have broken locale support (dumps core).
        b) some very old copies of flex were bundled with Tru64 4.0,

The lex-filt.l won't build with lex (just flex), so I special-cased that, rather than spend two weeks making a C-implementation of it to save 150kb of executable size.

Otherwise, the filters work with lex (within lex's limits on buffer size).
