This is nonsense, sorry. of ncurses and ncursesw will
work ok.

After playing with other packages with this issue and taking into
account the overcomplicated way cmake test curses, and the chaos
added by the patches I really advice to add something like this to
the Makefile.

if exists(/usr/lib/
LDFLAGS+=              -ltinfo

Of course someone experienced in cmake could rewrite the package with a
more OS agnostic approach.

It's the first time I'm using pkgsrc on linux, and now I value its
other unix systems support. Gentoo without systemd is a good
conbination when you can't run bsd. I could install cmake from
portage, but I'm trying to use the minimum native applications,
while avoiding to instal from pkgsrc what is already in the system.

NetBSD has had termcap/terminfo split from curses since forever.
If the application uses curses then use the mk/curses.*.mk files.
If the application uses terminfo then use the mk/terminfo.*.mk files.
If the application uses termcap then use the mk/terminfo.*.mk files.

You can use curses alongside either terminfo or termcap, but not terminfo and termcap.
