Since Janne was so very helpful and encouraging, I wanted to announce to
him (and you) that I cracked my problem with dialog being unable to work.
When I cd'd to my scratchbox installation in /opt/scratchbox, into
tools/bin, I inspected the ls -i listing, trying to see if there was maybe
some busybox-type linking going on, with something screwy with some central
image,  That wasan't so, each file had it's own inode, but I found out that
NONE of the files would execute.  So, I used less on dialog, and my less is
jiggered to use a special lesspipe.sh on elf-images, showing me linkage and
symbol info, and it was telling me it wanted the find it's shared files
from /scratchbox, NOT /opt/scratchbox, even though I guarantee that I did
in fact install sbox with that -s option to move it to /opt.  Well, just
experimenting, I added a /opt/scratchbox -> /scratchbox softlink, and now
its all fixed.

Wonder why that was working wrong?
