You're envisioning something like the following?
PREFER_PKGSRC+= curses # use a pkgsrc curses.
I rejected this because I was looking at adding support for different
curses implementations in pkgsrc, and the PREFER mechanism doesn't
encompass that. Eventually, I'd like for CURSES_DEFAULT to allow the
curses, ncurses, ncursesw, pdcurses
I'd eventually like to make using ncursesw more transparent, so that all
packages that link against curses and use ncursesw instead.
Looking into this a little more, I don't think it's possible to just use
ncursesw in place of ncurses when linking, so transparently compiling
and linking with ncursesw is not going to work. I am still working on a
pdcurses package to allow an alternative curses implementation to be used.
