Bug ID: 1039391
Summary: openSUSE:Factory/wyrd fails to build with recent
update of ncurses
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other

ncurses has recently been update to patch level 20170318m whcih contains:

+ change TERMINAL structure in term.h to make it opaque. Some
applications misuse its members, e.g., directly modifying it
rather than using def_prog_mode().

This seems to be the cause for wyrd no longer passing over configure, as it
tries to compile a sample program in order to find term.h - and the program is:

| #include <ncurses/term.h>
| int
| main ()
| {
| TERMINAL __dummy
| ;
| return 0;
| }

which fails with

gcc -c -g -O2 conftest.c >&5
conftest.c: In function 'main':
conftest.c:26:10: error: storage size of '__dummy' isn't known
