Just did the 'make' for ncurses 1.9.9g and (as the documentation
suggests) went to run the test programs before installing the new libs,
etc over the old ones (ncurses 1.8.6). When I ran ncurses or any
other test program I got the error msg: "error opening terminal:
console". I _do_ have a symbolic link /usr/lib/terminfo/c/console
pointing to /usr/lib/terminfo/l/linux. $TERM variable is: "console". I
thought that's all that was necessary. Guess not. Any help appreciated.
