ncurses 5.6-8
 
Hi all,

I have been told that not including the libncurses.so.5 library breaks
"many, many, many" binary blobs so I had to re-include that in the
ncurses package. Building on Arch will still link to the wide-character
libraries. It does now mean that the total rebuild was not necessary
but given over two thirds of the packages rebuilt had some sort of
clean-up (license/arch/md5sum/man page) and that wide-character support
is good, it was not a complete waste.

So signoff both arches please. I would like to move these on Monday if
possible.


As a reminder of the [core] rebuilds that occured are:

bash
readline
dialog
gettext
grub
less
nano
procinfo
procps
psmisc
texinfo
util-linux-ng (see below)
vi (see below)
gpm
heimdal
initscrits
isdn4k-utils
links
netkit-telnet

For your information, the following packages were not just plain
rebuilds and so probably require more attention in signing off:

vi - bump to the latest patchset
util-linux-ng - Required update and switch to the newer cryptloop
support patch mentioned in an old comment in the previous PKGBUILD to build


Cheers,
Allan

The following are working fine with normal usage: bash, readline,
gettext, grub, less, vi, and initscripts, so I'll throw a general
signoff for i686 your way

These rebuilds have now been moved to the main repos.
