Yes, as discussed on the buildroot mailing list in the last few hours,
this is what makes it work for me, too. There will be a fix for buildroot
to make it add this configure option.

Unfortunately, this does not solve the other "pxassp pointer not moving"
issue, but I will follow up on this in the other thread.

Thanks for the help on this one to anyone who jumped in!
