OK.  Fair enough.  It doesn't answer my question, though.  Can the NetBSD
shlib model cause other libs to be 'pulled in' in the solaris style?  If
so, surely ldd _should_ work on them (I mean, should be made to, I guess).
And equally, Why doesn't curses pull in termcap.

If it doesn't because our doesn't work that way, then why is our
curses dependant on termcap when other OS's aren't?
