dboostrap/boxes.c defines a set of "generic dialog boxes" using newt. No
other newt-dependent code is used in dbootstrap, to make it easy to use a
different toolkit. Just writing a boxes.c for another toolkit, and
linking with it instead of the current one will give us a different UI.
That's what Ben Pfaff did for the framebuffer UI ( utilities/bogl/* on
boot-floppies CVS, potato branch)
