What kind of license is ncurses under.

As described in the ncurses source distribution or at
http://www.gnu.org/directory/ncurses.html which is also Google's first hit for "ncurses license", the license an MIT-style one.

Just stay away from GPL'd libraries, then. No other license tha I know of has this problem. Another one: Be sure to only link dynamically to LGPL'ed libraries, too, as linking statically will require you to make your object files available.

Would I have such a problem if I use ncurses?
