 It should probably also include for the terminfo
 For that matter, it may be sufficient to include
 unconditionally on all platforms - it is supposed to be able to
 provide termcap/terminfo with ncurses if that's what's available.
 Is there any functionality difference between the terminfo and ncurses
 builds, or is it just selecting which libraries to put on the link
