Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-21 12:13:58 UTC
I'm reporting this bug because the package in summary fails to build when forcing --as-needed on through spec files (check out for details).

Check the attached build log.

Patch to Makefile to fix linking with --as-needed and to respect user LDFLAGS

This failure is the typical problem of passing libraries using LDFLAGS instead of LDLIBS.  The Makefile also overwrote user LDFLAGS with a fixed "-lncurses".  This patch drops the assignment of LDFLAGS and moves the -lncurses to LDLIBS, so that libraries are referenced after the object files that need them.

Thanks Kevin, applied now!
