    Hi Thomas :)

    Thanks for your answer. I've been working this weekend and I
didn't have time for answering your message until now, sorry.

    Yes, I know, I read the INSTALL file, but I assumed that the
mentioned 'infocmp' didn't have to be present in the building
environment, that it will be compiled and then used. Obviously I
didn't understand correctly, sorry O:)

    So, my only choice is to build a 'normal' (so to say) ncurses,
install it and, after that, building a 'non-database' ncurses library
using the recently installed 'infocmp' and database, am I wrong?

    Thanks a lot again for taking interest in my problem :)
