Hi All,

I am cross compiling ncurses5.5 for an ARM platform (XScale). While the
configure and make ran perfectly, I am facing a problem with make
install. It seems that it cannot execute tic for building terminfo.

I used /home/gaurav/Research/XScale/utils/arm-linux as prefix while the
source is located at /home/gaurav/Desktop/ncurses-5.5

I get the following error message:

THIS_CC="arm-linux-gcc" \
THAT_CC="gcc" \
sh ./run_tic.sh
** Building terminfo database, please wait...
Running tic to install 
/home/gaurav/Research/XScale/utils/arm-linux/share/terminfo ...

        You may see messages regarding extended capabilities, e.g., AX.
        These are extended terminal capabilities which are compiled
                tic -x
        If you have ncurses 4.2 applications, you should read the INSTALL
        document, and install the terminfo without the -x option.

./run_tic.sh: line 113: /home/gaurav/Research/XScale/utils/arm-linux/bin/tic: 
cannot execute binary file
? tic could not build 
make[1]: *** [install.data] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gaurav/Desktop/ncurses-5.5/misc'
make: *** [install] Error 2

I am stuck with this for quite some time now. Any suggestions? It can be really 

Thanks in advance
