Description Daniel Savard 2015-12-13 03:28:50 UTC
sys-boot/grub-0.97-r16 fails to ebuild on the ncurses library when tinfo is selected. I have seen this problem with at least two other packages so far.

Patch to to fix the problem

This patch fixes the problem adding the library and to the libraries.

Probably it needs to be checked separately in the configure script and added only if found. But, as a quick fix, it works for me.
Comment 3 Felix Janda 2015-12-13 12:58:18 UTC
You can also ask pkg-config for the correct ldflags.
