For ncurses it's more complicated - you'd have to apply the rollup patch

A little off topic, but is there a howto (for dummies) or instruction
sheet somewhere that spells out how to "apply the rollup patch".  A
couple of months ago I wanted to try updating ncursesw, but got stalled
with just what patch to download and what to do with it.

only briefly - here:

Like this (procedure hasn't changed in a while):

   The  rollup  patches include all patches through the cited version. You
   must apply them to the base release, e.g.,
        zcat ncurses-4.1.tar.gz |tar xf -
        cd ncurses-4.1
        sh ../

The ".sh" file contains uuencoded/gzip'd patches. The uuencoding is a problem for some (Redhat for instance moved that to sharutils package
which isn't part of the base system).  There's a bzip2'd version of the
rollup patch.
