RFS: nitfol - a Z-machine adventure game interpreter


this is the sixth of my seven sponsoring requests for packages related
to Interactive Fiction and the Glk library specification.  I'm posting
them separately for clarity and CCing the corresponding ITP for each
package. Apologies for the number of emails.  Any comments on the packages
are welcome.

Glk is a cross-platform, portable user interface library specification.
It can handle simple graphics but does best at text, which can contain
formatting and hyper-links. It is targeted primarily for interactive fiction 
(text adventure) systems.

The packages more or less depend on one another. See the end of this
mail for a crude dependency graph. All of the packages use cdbs and
libtool, and most use automake as well.

Name: nitfol
ITP: #338475
License: GPL

Description: a Z-machine adventure game interpreter
 Nitfol is an interpreter that will play adventure games written for Infocom's
 Z-machine standard. It uses the Glk library and is thus highly portable and
 will run on both X and a terminal. It has limited support for sound and
 graphics, a built-in Z-code debugger and an automapper.

The dependency graph of the packages is crudely
