BO5 for Linux: bug report and workaround

I was reported a bug in the BO5 screen drivers for Linux console
(something like a CRT for GPC): on some machines the program stops
with a runtime error "cannot access video memory", even if compiling
and executing as root.
To work around, use the TERMCAP version instead; the only visible
differences are that you (1) have to specify the termcap library when
gpc -I /usr/src/bo5 -D TERMCAP hallo.pas -ltermcap -o hallo
and that (2) you have to set the CL_COLOR environment variable in order
to get colors:
The next version will fix this bug (I will probably rewrite the
Linux drivers in complete).
