7.133. ncurses

Updated ncurses packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The ncurses (new curses) library routines are a terminal-independent method of updating character screens with reasonable optimization. The ncurses packages contain support utilities including a terminfo compiler tic, a decompiler infocmp, clear, tput, tset, and a termcap conversion tool captoinfo.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, compilation of applications that use pkg-config and static linking could fail, as the ncurses.pc files did not include the "-ltinfo" option for static linking with ncurses. To fix this bug, the "-ltinfo" option has been included in the pkg-config files and applications now compile successfully.
Users of ncurses are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
