If you start in the screen with the red apples, and go north twice (which you cannot do directly because of some assorted barriers), you will see a (grey) bonca. This location is also the western-most point at the base of the cliffs. This bonca uses the en-bonc3.c script, so that means that the bonca should quickly turn purple (actually before the player or Dink can see that the editor placed sprite is grey) if Dink enters that screen.

However, this same bonca script shows that if (&key != 2) the bonca does not appear at all. The &key value is set to 2 when Jack's wife answer's Dink's "What's the problem?" or "Where is your husband?" questions, but only if the value of &key is already 1. I think the value of &key is only set to 1 when Dink uses the "intro to this game" item that he can buy for 8000 gold pieces.

So, try this:
Buy the intro, use it and then be sure to visit Jack's wife and ask one of those two questions. Then go that go back to that western-most point at the base of the cliffs and the purple bonca should be there.

Good Luck
