add option to use emulators/dosbox or emulators/dosbox-staging
Testing on 12.1 amd64.
Over to maintainer.
Gerald, something wrong with patch?

No, and sorry for the delay.
I would prefer not to take this into the port, since it complicates the
port and adds (yet) another thing I cannot actually test and not really
Is this important for you? Do you have a particular use case/reason?
(In reply to Gerald Pfeifer from comment #3)
AFAIU, dosbox-staging is more active project: https://dosbox-staging.github.io/about/
Use SDL2 (I want remove old SDL 1.2 from my hosts).
Other differences are here:
The patch for wine doesn't fix any bug, it's an enhancement, therefore it should be submitted directly upstream. As for new DOSBOX option I leave it to maintainer discretion.

I agree, and will submit a variation to Wine upstream. Good point, Max!(In reply to VVD from comment #4)

Sorry for the delay on this, VVD. What do you think, could we simply
*replace* the flavor of DOSBOX used? Or should we go for your original
proposal with both options?
As a (possibly relevant) note on this, the topic of SDL also came up in the
context of bug#249869.

I have successfully done that in October:

winevdm: Abstract references to /dosbox.

My feeling is to base on this and simply switch to the new flavor should
there be interest (and someone to test/use). Since my question to that end
hasn't received an answer I'm closing this PR (as Not Accepted for lack of
a better option), but remain open to follow up.
