before i do this, (1) can i install my non-Gentoo Ncurses in  /usr/local ?
(2) if so, do i have to do anything special to have the  .so  file found ?
(3) if not, can i simply copy the  1  file above to  /usr/lib ?
(4) then do i have to do anything special to get it found ?

Gentoo is excellent, but i'm reluctant to interfere w its lib system.
anything i compile myself (eg Lynx) goes in  /usr/local .
