ncurses libtinfo breaks "menu makeconfig"

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: toolchain Version: Trunk
Keywords: menuconfig ncurses tinfo cbreak Cc:


Newer versions of ncurses moves some symbols from libncurses to libtinfo. Build systems that do not check pkg-config tend to break when they can't find needed symbols in libncurses.

undefined reference to symbol 'cbreak'

There is a fix for very similar problem that was applied to the Linux Kernel's "make menuconfig" that provides a good reference.

Sheesh. I'm becoming dyslexic... Title for bug should read "make menuconfig"

Same issue with "make kernel_menuconfig". Also causes problems linking cmake when building the toolchain.
