BTW, the "Red Hat" way is:

libncurses5-devel
   contains static libs (and import libs, in cygwin parlance)
   contains header files
   contains the man (3) pages
   RH also includes the source code/makefile for the test progs

libncurses5
   contains shared libs only (DLLs)

ncurses
   contains the utility programs
   contains the terminfo database/tabset stuff
   contains the man (1),(5), and (7) pages
   Note that RH's terminfo database, as installed, is stripped down.

Perhaps this is a better plan?  (Doesn't avoid any of the problems 
mentioned in my other email, and makes maintaining the terminfo database 
separately more difficult, but....)
