With changing line ~200 to
$(cdk_objs): cdk-%.o: cdk/%.c

I can compile a source checkout curses version (though the LuaJIT
version crashes with "terminated by signal SIGSEGV (Address boundary error)"

Building from the nightly both crash but maybe I messed something up in
between ...

I can try again tomorrow ...

Right, I remember -- if it's still the same, then it's probably worth
trying to get it to compile. It seems that Lua-based FFI libraries are
more or less abandoned?

The thread I found mentions FFI and some startup speedup to be the main
advantages. Maybe it's worth repeating the poll?
