So, autotools is deprecated because we have switched over to cmake. I was thinking of dropping it completely, but since you're sending this patch set seems to indicate that you - and perhaps others - still depend on autotools.

Some of us just don't like cmake very much. I don't think system builders like it at all (it's hard to avoid a certain amount of interaction).

There *was* a problem involving ncurses/termcap, but it's been so long since I last did a build that I've forgotten exactly what it was -- maybe cmake failing to recognize them as mutually exclusive. It may or may not have been fixed since.

(I'm not sure any linux distribution even comes with termcap these days, but it's still useful for very small systems and a handful of critical programs.)

Fortunately, I never throw anything away and I'm attaching the patch I came up with for 1.1.6. Maybe someone else can make some sense of it...I know I can't any more. :)
