Now you have me confused... Kconfig / Kbuild would be integrated into
the OpenBIOS tree, just as my xmlmake build system is now. So
dependencies to libxstl / xsltproc would go away, and a dependency to
(n)curses would instead come in... I don't see that as a big risk. But
I'm quite open to suggestions. At least libxslt on Debian seems to be
fixed now, it's been a while since people complained about that breaking...
