Ah, that's quite possible.

20111112, and now I see that indeed this patchlevel does not generate
any tic*.pc or tinfo*.pc with the given options.  That bug is concealed
in the Debian build, because we also build a version without
--enable-widec, and that build generates correct tic.pc and tinfo.pc

So it had always been broken, actually.

And have -ltic, -ltinfo in the Libs: section.
