@Reden, anyone can adopt this package.

This package got orphaned. I hope that this gets a new owner soon.

@AbysmalBiscuit Updated the PKGBUILD to also use "-ltinfo". Thank you.

The build process fails.

The issue more specifically is that there is a problem with the linking of the ncurses library, since it needs the tinfo library (so tinfo must be linked as well).
This seems to be a bug that has been introduced with a recent update to ncurses.

The Makefile needs to have: CURSES = -lncurses -ltinfo

Here is a link to a fixed PKGBUILD:

(As a side note: the $opt argument in the setconf command in the prepare() section wasn't double quoted which can cause problems.)

@xyproto: you forgot to update .SRCINFO in the last commit.
