Description of problem:
The slang package is missing several dependencies. The most critical
is the devel package not requiring libtermcap-devel. This is because
the .a files in the slang-devel expect the .a files of
libtermcap-devel to be installed. Please apply the following patch:

 This package contains the S-Lang extension language static libraries

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. This is tricky to reproduce. I don't remember which package it
shows up in: kudzu or newt. But its a couple of package dependencies
away from slang when the buildtree fails.

This is a real bug. Please do not close this PR without addressing the
issue. Let me show you that libtermcap-devel is indeed required:

[root@buildhost root]# nm /usr/lib/libslang.a | grep 'U ' | grep tge
         U tgetent
         U tgetflag
         U tgetnum
         U tgetstr
         U SLtt_tgetstr
         U SLtt_tgetnum

[root@buildhost root]# nm /usr/lib/libtermcap.a | grep 'tge'
00000ab0 T tgetent
00000048 D tgetent_bufsize
00000d90 T tgetflag
00000d30 T tgetnum
00000dc0 T tgetstr

From the spec file:

%package devel
Summary: The static library and header files for development using S-Lang.

Note that we are talking about the static libraries. This bug is real
and the patch originally submitted should be applied.
