There are one or more binaries from this package in /sbin that are linked
against libraries in /usr/lib. I am aware that there is a static version of
restore, but why not just make the default version statically linked, period?

In any case, enough binaries are linked against ncurses and readline, for
example, to perhaps warrant placing those two libs in /lib. Perhaps a cut-
down version of ncurses?

Even better, use termcap, as that's on the root partition anyway, isn't it?

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-15 09:26:39 UTC
I don't consider this a mission critical problem myself.  Putting a cut
down version of ncurses in would just increase complexity for no real
end user gain.  I don't see any problem with the way the package is in
its current state.
