Patch to allow compiling when using tinfo (non-conditional)

net-dns/dnstop does not compile because of undefined references to ncurses symbols when sys-libs/ncurses is compiled with "tinfo" use flag.
The attached patch allows compiling with sys-libs/ncurses[tinfo].
This should be made dependent on the status of tinfo use flag sys-libs/ncurses (attached patch is NOT conditional).
