Description Travis Hansen 2013-02-14 16:58:01 UTC
checking for linking with curses library... OK
checking for tgetent()... configure: error: NOT FOUND!
      You need to install a terminal library; for example ncurses.
      Or specify the name of the library with --with-tlib.
 * ERROR: app-editors/vim-core-7.3.762 failed (configure phase):
 *   econf failed

Reproducible: Always

patch vim.eclass to not overconstrain vim's configure script

This works for me.

If you look in vim's configure script, it tries tinfo first, followed by ncurses, then other things, so I don't see why this wouldn't work for everyone.

Note that the comment that is removed in my patch appears to be outdated - the current context looks nothing like what the patch in bug 93970 does.
