It builds but it doesn't add any new description. It will just
overwrite the previous st description.

That should be fixed when the info file is fixed.

There's no unicode support atm.

TERM is set to st-256colors and there's no description of its
capabilities (= correct backspace keycode). Just change TERM to st or
xterm but the emulation not quite ready yet for the latter; some
things get messed up. But try it anyway, it might just work for you.
You can change TERM directly in st.c. Maybe I should put that define
in config.h...

It's good to see some feedback on the list, I thought to no one was
interested in the project :)
I'm planning to write the current state of st on its page along with
some information on what can be configured, etc.
