Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.6.8nb4, Package name: bochs-2.6.8nb4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The program bochs is a highly portable open source x86 PC emulator
written in C++, and runs on most popular platforms. It includes
emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common IO devices, and a custom
BIOS. Currently, bochs can be compiled to emulate a 386, 486,
Pentium, Pentium PRO or AMD64 CPU.

Bochs is capable of running most operating systems inside the
emulation including Linux, NetBSD, Windows 95, DOS, and Windows NT 4.

Log message:
bochs can be build with at least clang and gcc

Remove old (from 2004) property that there is allowed gcc only.

Log message:
Bump all packages that depend on curses.bui* or terminfo.bui* since they
might incur ncurses dependencies on some platforms, and ncurses just bumped
its shlib.
Some packages were bumped twice now, sorry for that.

    - SB16: Ported OPL3 emulation from DOSBox and partly removed legacy code.
    - ES1370: Added MIDI UART output support.
    - ES1370: Fixed critical bug that made Win9x drivers crash.
    - Major rewrite of the lowlevel sound code.
      - Added mixer thread support (required for all modules except 'sdl').
      - New mixer and SDL mixer are polling data from the PCM output buffers,
        the PC speaker beep generator and the OPL3 FM generator.
      - PCM format conversion to 16 bit signed little endian.
