A quick one before I get some sleep.

On the pmax, the shared libraries for ncurses are not getting built
properly.  Currenly (using libpanel as an example), it uses:

	ld -Bshareable -o ../lib/ ../obj_s/panel.o

and this fails badly at link time.  Using (by hand):

	ld -x -shared -soname -o ../lib/ /usr/lib/crtbeginS.o ../objects/panel.o /usr/lib/crtendS.o

works fine.  This is with the 1.4 tagged pkgsrc and not -current.

I'd appreciate it if someone who knows the right magic and is more awake
than me could look into this...
