Judging by the name, I'm guessing it's an SLang function, and the API
has probably changed since slrn- released Oct. 2004.  Yeah, I
found it in slang-2.0.5/src/slang.h.  Browsing the CVS of slrn, it
looks like someone by the name of JED submitted a bunch of patches for
slang 2 support.  I think this is the one you're choking on:

Maybe we should see what the distros have done.  I.e., let's see if we
can rip off a patch instead of grovelling through the CVS to figure
out what's absolutely relavant.

Richard, could you open a bug for this?  It seems legitimate.
