Hi, recently I switched from Debian DomUs to NetBSD 6.0 DomUs.
I found a small problem with htop package, which turned out to be two different glitches - one with htop, the second one with ncurses.
I'm installing everything using pkgin which was set up during NetBSD system installation by the installer.
when I did:
pkgin install htop
calculating dependencies... done.
/usr/lib/libmenu.so.5, needed by ncurses-5.9 is not present in this system.
/usr/lib/libform.so.5, needed by ncurses-5.9 is not present in this system.
nothing to upgrade.
1 packages to be installed: htop-1.0.1 (1302K to download, 6702K to install)
the following packages have unmet requirements: ncurses-5.9
proceed ? [Y/n] y
pkg_install warnings: 0, errors: 0

processing local summary...
updating database: 100%
marking htop-1.0.1 as non auto-removable
Which is really strange since it installs the package even though it can't meet its dependencies. This is the first problem. And after that, running htop fails with:
Error opening terminal: xterm.
My NetBSD 6.0 has a libmenu.so and libform.so but they're linked to libmenu.so.6 and 6.0 so it seems the real problem is with ncurses package which I suppose was built against NetBSD 5?
I know I can build ncurses from pkgsrc but I wanted to use binary-only packages on this system.
Can someone please fix ncurses package? I can't send a PR right now because I'm at work and netbsd.org is blocked.
PS. My repository for pkgin is the default one:
so I thought all official packages should be built against a NetBSD 6.0 release.
