Done, after using the new version for a day without noticing any
problems and building a few packages with it.
I got two lintian warnings about the *-config programs not having man
pages but it's pretty minor thing.

It's also not exactly new since ncurses-config never had a manpage…

Probably look at the pkg-config man page and use that.

Thomas, would you accept an ncurses-config manpage if we provide one?

yes (license-compatible, etc).  I just overlooked it, since it does have
a --help, etc.

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.

thanks (will fix...)
