I downloaded and tried it.

it compiled fine on my solaris box here at work, but it didn't work so fine (it
was 110k before i striped it, 67k after. using only libc)

i was able to open a new file, enter insert mode with i, type hello (it frooze
some time between "hel" and "lo", and i was not able to save with ESC :wq. not
even releasing the shell back to me, nor accepting ^c nor ^z, very strange.

didn't try a lot more.
