On 21-Mar-99 Berndt Josef Wulf spoke unto us all:
#  G'day,
#  Last weekend I needed the ncurses libs to build the dialog package
#  which was needed for tnt-1.7. I was suprised that it was barred from
#  building on the alpha platform.
I was the one who NOT_ARCH'd that pkg.  I was having problems with it building
because of the shared libraries.. But its fully possible that various ELF
friendly fixes to the tree may have fixed it for me.

I'll try to pull that this week some time. thanks for the report.
