Thanks for providing the manpage(s) now, but there is a little problem.
At least in out-of-tree builds (like in the Debian package),
ncurses*-config.1 does not get installed when running "make install"
because (like terminfo.5) it is in the build tree and not in $(scrdir),
but man/Makefile.in does not take this into account.
