Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2000-12-30 07:40:19 EST
In addition to the current symlink /usr/lib/libcurses.so -> libncurses.so,
it would be good to have a similar symlink for the static libraries also. 
Some curses programs (e.g., ocaml) support static linkage, and have
hard-coded -lcurses references.
