I'm puzzled: testing with your configure options (to identify the point
at which the breakage occurred), I'm seeing only that the tic*.pc and
tinfo*.pc files appeared recently - testing for instance 5.9, 20110716,

What was the patch-date you were using previously?

I agree that they should be named tic.pc, tinfo.pc for the given options.
