Nucrses3.4 was placed in incoming long before info or tin. I stupidly
assumed the auto-installer would get to it first, which would guarantee
that ncurses would be there to support info. But the installer skipped
it completely. Not rejected, just _skipped_. So info and tin went
right into hamm, but without ncurses.
Apparantly any package which actually creates new binary packages (like
ncurses3.4) has to be installed by hand. Guy is on a 4-week vacation.
This is a very bad combination. :( Would somebody with authority
_please_ nove the new ncurses packages (and the new oldncurses packages)
