Huh? I've just rebuilt pkgsrc/devel/ncurses to make sure, and at the 
very beginning of "make install", I get this:

 >> Checksum OK for ncurses-1.9.9g.tar.gz.
 ===>  Installing for ncurses-1.9.9g
 cd include; make   INSTALL_PREFIX="" install
 installing term.h in /usr/pkg/include
 installing curses.h in /usr/pkg/include
 installing unctrl.h in /usr/pkg/include
 installing termcap.h in /usr/pkg/include

So, I'm not sure how this gets into /usr/pkg/include for you. (This is on
i386, though; no Macs around here). Can you send me a complete log of a
"make && make install", please? I don't have access to a 1.3 Mac (yet >:).

Yup. Please report any problems you have with send-pr, that's the 
preferred way so things don't get lost.

The same to all of you out there! :-)
