Sure, this is fine.

But what you're really saying is that one of the dlls in libncurses7 
used by xemacs


is not rebase-able.  I'm not clear on the history; there was a time when 
a number of DLLs were considered "not rebase-able" but I don't remember 
why, or whether the issue was ever fixed (in rebase.exe, or in the DLLs 

*I* wonder, if xemacs were rebuilt against the CURRENT ncurses libraries 
(libncurses8), would it still have similar problems -- e.g. would you 
need to rebaseall and then reinstall libncursesEIGHT?

If so, it's a problem I need to track down, as the ncurses maintainer. 
If not, then the XEmacs maintainer should simply release a new version, 
recompiled against the new ncurses.
