Hi, I want to confirm the libtinfo issue. A fix would be nice. I do not want to mess around with symlinks and have to use `ncurses-full` when I want to compile Haskell stuff and normal `ncurses` when I want to, e.g., run `vim`. You can imagine that this is getting really anoying :-). Thanks for this package anyways, otherwise Haskell compilation wouldn't work at all...

I know what you mean. I keep having the same ghc issue every month or so in one form or another.

I have this and it seems to have solved my Haskell issues this time around:

local/ncurses 6.0+20170902-3
System V Release 4.0 curses emulation library
local/ncurses5-compat-libs 6.0+20170902-1
System V Release 4.0 curses emulation library, ABI 5

ncurses is from core. Perhaps you need to reinstall ncurses5-compat-libs after updating ncurses?

On a related note, I installed ncurses-full in a useless attempt to circumvent build problems related to ncurses encountered while using Haskell on ArchLinux, because someone suggested that on some webpage.

Previously, my circumvention was to use 'core/ncurses-6.0+20170902-1', 'aur/ncurses5-compat-libs 6.0+20170902-1' and a manually-created symlink /usr/lib/ However, 'core/ncurses-6.0+20170902-1' has been superceded by 'core/ncurses-6.0+20170902-2' but there's no accompanying 'aur/ncurses5-compat-libs 6.0+20170902-2', at least not yet.

So, for now, I'm just reverting to my original circumvention which works, 'downgrading' to 'core/ncurses-6.0+20170902-1' and 'aur/ncurses5-compat-libs 6.0+20170902-1' and manually creating the symlink.

i will take a look at both issues, asap.

This tries to create a symlink /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/, but the latter file does not exist and the target should probably just be /usr/lib/ or /usr/lib/ should link to that.

This package isn't working with the system ghc. /usr/lib/ghc-8.2.1/bin/ghc: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

/usr/lib/ on my system is supposed to link to /usr/lib/, but that file isn't there. Anyway we can get this fixed?
