 Happened during pkg_rolling-replace, which calls 'make replace' AFAIK. =

 Contrary to what I reported earlier, I think ncurses was not yet =
 installed, but,
 as a new dependency to mate desktop, it is required now.

 The package obviously creates hard links which only differ in case.=20
 With a little hack I was able to install the package, creating a nullfs =
 mount point
 /usr/alt/terminfo     45620060   15202936   28136122  35% =
 Thus making the terminfo directory pointing again to the NetBSD =
 rather than nfs.
 So, bottom line seems to be: ncurses cannot be installed on case =
 filesystems, which is default on macOS.
 What do you suggest is the best solution?=
