Hello everyone, I'm Tsume. Thanks for reading.
Its well worth the upgrade, but I feel it very inefficient how I've re
rewrite the makefiles from scratch just because I don't have 3 hours
just to write makefiles. I want to hack the generated makefile in the
build, but I know it wouldn't be accepted because its not standard.
I am still not understanding here.
Do you mean that ncurses 5.4 from pkgsrc has been stripped down/back from
'conventional' ncurses, and you are working to bring it back into line
The makefiles used for build are not like the makefiles generated after
running ./configure, they are completely different. I could hack them in,
but it would look horrible.

Well, actually xterm 256 color support, and many other additions have been
developed since the release of 5.4. You can view the patches from Dickey's
There have been numerous bugfixes and additions. I was unsure of using a
CVS version of ncurses for the reason of using release versions, and using
code which is what others would be running on thier unix variant.
Still not sure what your changes are, or if they are 'restoral' or new
(5.4.x, 5.5 ...?)
I made no changes to ncurses. I needed to clean up what was not needed
from the release. There just needs to be the files only needed for
