Well, actuaclly on os x it's named libncurses.5.0.3.dylib, but the
version and compat versions are 6.x only if built with libtool. The

no, the file names stay exactly the same, the problem is libtool adds 1 to whatever version is passed to it (only in darwin). I was thinking would it be a good idea for ncurses to decrease the version passed to libtool by 1 if built in darwin?

so I see - the rules I've got for darwin use $(NCURSES_MAJOR) and
$(NCURSES_MINOR) rather than $(ABI_VERSION).  I think I have enough
information to be able to make libtool do the expected thing on my next
patch -- I'll add that to my to-do list.

Note that in general it's not possible to make the versions match up,
since libtool uses its own convention for version numbers.

i thought a host-specific case statement could take care of this? but atm the main problem i see is when the ncurses abi is increased to 6. then some programs will be looking for slightly different ncurses that have the same abi, no?
