[Mingw-cross-env-list] [PATCH] Fix readline runtime behavior

Hi everyone,

an application using readline currently experiences runtime
problems. For example, backspace does not work. This is because
pdcurses, which readline currently uses to get information about a
terminal, does not really implement tgetent() and friends; they are only
stubs. Google "pdcurses readline backspace" for more information.

First I tried using ncurses instead, but then the application crashes.
I did not try to debug.

I simply added libtermcap and made readline use that. Yes, it is
ancient, but it works fine...

Patch attached.
