Could it be related to bug 457530? I don't have the time to test it currently, but adding `append-ldflags -ltinfo` might create positive results. A lot of packages linking to curses were hit with undefined symbols errors when tinfo became a thing, and some of the lesser used ones, such as cone, still suffer from the breakages.
Just a thought... (I experienced this exact issue earlier today on a perfectly standard AMD64 stable system.)

Still an issue.

> Still an issue.
It seems like this has been an issue for quite some time, probably due to the absence of a maintainer. I don't use Cone anymore, so I don't really want to pick it up as a Proxy. Perhaps you could try some of the hotfixes suggested in the tinfo tracker discussion (#457530) until someone fixes the ebuild?
With that said, this program probably shouldn't be in the main Gentoo repository at all. If it won't compile, has no maintainer, and very little activity on critical bug reports, perhaps it should be masked and be kept in a dev overlay?
