One issue with curess in BSD land is that there is "curses" which is
really good enough for almost all things that claim to need ncurses.

There is an x-open specification:

and I haven't looked at it yet, but it may be that gpsd should be
adjusted to first look for that in the way the standard says it has to
be, and tehn look for ncurses.

On NetBSD, there is curses.h and, but no pc file - because
curses has been part of BSD ~forever.  According to the man page, since
4.0BSD, released in October of 1980!

Do we know that gpsd needs features not in the spec?
