	Yea, that is what I figured. Though I went and grabbed the source
to termcap-compat, uncompressed it, ran 'debian/rules binary' in the
resulting directory, and then installed the resulting debian package. The
resulting library according to ldd was linked with libc6, while the one in
the original termcap-compat package had been linked with lic5. 
	After resolving a few ncurse version issues (yes, this annoying
program is linked with both termcap and ncurses!), I got it to work just
fine. Thanks for everyone's help!
