I've got keyboard events. In ipl's kbd_tty.c I changed:

to (stealing some code from fgl's init_fb.c):

So, I've got a blue background screen, a mouse drawing, moving, and
redrawing properly, and mouse and keyboard events being processed.

I've traced my drawing problems: everything is getting called that
needs to get called, it's just not drawing anything (i.e. all of Calc
runs, and is waiting for my input, but other than a blue screen and a
mouse, none of the widgets are drawn.

Any ideas?

That "--with-mou=no" really is "--with-mou=ps2".  Sorry about that.
