  what version (and patch date) for ncurses?

ncurses 5.4 as grabbed from ftp.gnu.org.  Sorry for not noting that
info before.

Didn't see a announcment post to address@hidden, so I was assuming
that this was still the latest and greatest.  Will try 5.5.

ok. If that doesn't work, I'll need more details. The last set of changes to that was to make the manpage-renames for Debian work properly,
and that was several months ago.

I noticed some comment about address@hidden when I was preparing the 5.5 release, but was using the same approach as for 5.4 and 5.3 - and sometime in that interval, someone put up the webpage with additional info from which I used the pieces dealing with ftp uploads that I had asked if it was written down online (it wasn't at that time), but didn't incorporate that (will keep it in mind).

The 5.5 announcement was on freshmeat and bug-ncurses (previous releases also had been announced on comp.os.linux.announce, but I decided not to go there this time).
