makefile-libs.patch

This ebuild breaks in linkage:

x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-g++ -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed -o dvorakng dvorakng.o lessons.o -lncurses
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.9.3/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: dvorakng.o: undefined reference to symbol 'curs_set'
/lib64/libtinfo.so.5: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:33: recipe for target 'dvorakng' failed
make: *** [dvorakng] Error 1

The fix is very simple: we just need to add "-ltinfo"

Attached is a suggested patch and the corresponding ebuild.

That's wrong for anyone who does /not/ have sys-libs/ncurses[tinfo].
