ui/ncurses: Use a separate type for help text
Because it's initialised statically, help text won't be directly gettext()-ed. Instead, we need to perform the gettext translation at runtime, and pass untranslated strings into the help_screen code. Instead of trusting callers to pass the untranslated strings though, we encapsulate the help text data into struct help_text, so we know we have an unstranslated string. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Kerr <>
