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 removed the restriction and succesfully compiled the ncurses,
dialog and consequently tnt-1.7.
Is ncurses considered to be broken on netbsd-alpha? The comment in the
Makefile mentioned that the alpha port needed to be "libtooled"
whatever this means.
Anyhow, as far as I am concerned, it now works for me ;)
Perhaps an opportunity for someone in the know to change the
status of ncurses in the packages tree and for that matter
most other applications which use these libs.
