                 Summary: ./configure on HP-UX with ncurses-5.7 fails to find

Default configure/make/install of ncurses-5.7 builds separate libtinfo.a
library and places tgetent there instead of libncurses.a:

address@hidden:~/xxx3 > objdump -t lib/libtinfo.a | grep getent
00000560 g     F .text  00001130 tgetent
address@hidden:~/xxx3 > objdump -t lib/libncurses.a | grep getent
address@hidden:~/xxx3 > 

This results in ./configure being unable to locate tgetent on HP-UX:

configure: checking for tgetent...
configure: checking libcurses...
configure: checking libtermcap...
configure: checking libtermlib...
configure: checking libncursesw...
configure: checking libncurses...
configure: error: !!! no tgetent - no screen

I suggest checking for -ltinfo too (patch is attached)
