With the split of libslang, we need following programs which link against the
- whiptail-utf8 Ask dancerj, he forked the newt package which links against
Patches to create both last packages are on
We (me and dancerj) decided (at least it made this impression) to make
new "shadow" source packages, ig. new cfdisk-utf8, nano-bf and newt-utf8
source packages, which use the original .orig.tar.gz tarballs from util-linux,
nano and own diff files (same scheme as used on fetchmail<-ssl>).

- build and upload new -utf8 packages
- change EXTRACT maps to install this packages where needed. Note that we
should not need this i18n-non-i18n-mixed crap longer. The disk is either
completely built on -utf8, or on non-utf8 slang.
- change rootdisk.sh to move the programs to the right locations, ie. moving
cfdisk-utf8 to /sbin/cfdisk.
BTW: does anyone know how to contact the loadlin upstream? I see that error
and can reproduce another one (crc error) with kernel 2.4 on Athlon.
