Does it still make sense to ship this package and compile our packages
against it or should it get dropped?

It's build required by the following packages:

aalib
brltty
dialog
installation-images
loki_setup
xemacs
emacs
ncurses
vim
mc

and thus gets installed on each and every system.

Ok, I'm not dropping it. I've heard enough reasons to keep it ;)

I've now checked the requirements and removed it where it's not needed at all
- and split up a devel package.

Btw. we still have 1.20.1 and 1.20.6 is out. If any of you heavy gpm users
want to update and test, this would be appreciated,

Andreas
