Hey Ervin, Tom, and the gang;

re: the "discussion 72"

I've made SOME progress....AND I can clearly state that installing the
libtinfo does NOT help by itself ! Nor does it help with any of the
suggested changes in the "./configure ....." invocation. And yeah it
is related to upstream issues with pkg-config and so forth.


I have completed a successful test build of tlf-git by making it
dependent on a new package called lib_tlf. SImple enough and this way
I can get on with things.
** I have attached that to here.

- I am not sure this is the best a test run of tlf
looked/seemed odd....that could be due to not actually going through a
normal/proper config or something more problematic. i.e. I do nit use
tlf so I am not sure what to expect. (The video and colors seem fb.)
i.e. ***** I need to compare versions a bit first, before I cna talk
more completely about there being any other &/or remaining issues.
