#1976 new bug

Incorrect ncursesw detection on OpenBSD

Reported by: vext01 Owned by:
Milestone: Future Keywords: openBSD


The angband build uses ncursesw5-config to detect ncursesw. On OpenBSD (and other BSDs?) there is noncursesw5-config. ncursesw is part of the base system and can be assumed to be always installed.

(Note however that it is probably best to add define _OPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED as older versions on OpenBSD inherited a broken implementation of some ncurses functions which got stuck in an infinite loop -- I believe this is fixed now. This causes a blank screen upon starting angband).

In Angband 4.1.3, curses is correctly detected, but wide character support is erroneously not detected.
