It doesn't make sense to me.  I thought that the runtime package would
include all of the shared libraries that other programs might need.
Isn't that what lib*.so provide, the shared libraries?  And the
symlinks are used by ld.so, no?  On a disk tight system I don't want to
have to install -dev just to run some packages built on ncurses.  Let me
know if I what I'm missing here.
