Shouldn't the buildlink system automatically add the curses.h header also?
I was thinking that even though we only provide ncurses.h that we'd have a
symlink for this when buildlinking.

Or I do see
BUILDLINK_TRANSFORM.ncurses+=   -e "s|/curses\.h|/ncurses.h|g
in the devel/ncurses/ but I guess it is not used.

What can we do about this? Or is the patch the best way?
