On second thought -- not really. The old ncurses-developer, and
ncurses-runtime are not automatically superceded. I could remove
developer. dpkg stopped me on removing runtime, because dependencies
to dialog and miscutils. I compliled a new miscutils and kicked dialog.
Then I removed ncurses-runtime. Now /use/lib/terminfo is no more.
Looks pretty cool. OTOH, I should go to bed ...
