(In reply to David Kredba from comment #2)

upstream merged a different fix, but was referenced from that thread:;a=blobdiff;f=ncurses/base/;h=b91398c740a266f10edbbce19f19c52b9709556f;hp=d8cc3c9751faa157d0c8cb8e16fbe4217703966b;hb=97bb4678dc03e753290b39bbff30ba2825df9517;hpb=762520a7930d7f698d542628d3c04bc201f7dac2

i've added that to the tree now.  thanks for the tip!
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2015-03-31 21:18:06 UTC
should be all set now in the tree; thanks for the report!

Commit message: Add fix from upstream for building w/gcc-5
Comment 5 Marek Bartosiewicz 2015-04-17 06:17:53 UTC
Please update also 5.9-r3 (stable) ebuild.

(In reply to Marek Bartosiewicz from comment #5)

that's not how we do things.  if you're trying to use gcc-5, then you better be using ~arch so fixes get pulled in.  trying to use a pre-release compiler w/stable is never supported.
