Then, acs_map declaration would move to libtinfo specific headers and removed
from ncurses.h? I guess a lot of applications expecting acs_map in ncurses.h
will break (though I have no idea how many there are).
Actually, it will be the same issue for all symbols declared in ncurses.h which
are actually implemented outside libncurses.

Thx! I will update my list of patches following the latest roll-up patch :)
