Just to clarify this. Yes, H.J. is phasing out the old BSD curses and
termcap in favor of ncurses. However, H.J. is currently looking for
other maintainers to take over support of the extra libs which he has
traditionally packaged with libc. In fact, the latest BETA package
from H.J. only includes libc and libm.
