Re: Fix build breaks in ncurses c++ binding

Sure. It makes sense to make sure we do have an issue by applying any changes. 
I guess the repo on my side is related to home-brew. I was actually trying to 
compile my code against brew-dupes/ncurses.

Attachment: test.cpp
Description: Binary data

Test code is attached. The issue could be reproduced by

$ brew tap homebrew/dupes
$ brew install ncurses
$ g++ --version
Configured with: --prefix=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr 
Apple LLVM version 5.1 (clang-503.0.40) (based on LLVM 3.4svn)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin13.3.0
Thread model: posix
$ g++ -I/usr/local/opt/ncurses/include -L/usr/local/opt/ncurses/lib -lncurses++ 
-lncurses -lpanel -lmenu -o /tmp/anothertest /tmp/test.cpp

This issue is also reproducible on my Linux box with gcc version

$ g++ --version
g++ (Funtoo 4.8.2-r2) 4.8.2
