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.
