I checked in a change.  At the moment (long moment), I'm preparing a release for ncurses, and intend flushing out backlog for vile and lynx once that's done.

for what it's worth, the item I fixed last week here:


is still older.

thanks - actually that's an old typo that simply was never noticed (since most systems provide both).  I see it in the current form in a change from 2008/1/13, carried forward from the initial version in 1997.

About time it was fixed...

vile 9.8 patchlevel 's' did not build properly on my setup -- this was due (in part) to a typo in tcap.h.

The declaration within "#ifdef MISSING_EXTERN_TGETSTR" is not correct; it declares t*i*getstr(), not tgetstr().  Remove the superfluous 'i' here to correct this issue.  (In my patched source, it appears at tcap.h line 187).
