I just installed ncurses 6.0+20170902-3 from Testing and can confirm it fixes the issue. It should be available in Core soon.

Well it seems like the Arch ncurses package was in fact doing something wrong, but it should be fixed in 6.0+20170902-3.

The Arch ncurses changes broke my dte package too. I wonder why other distros can build libtinfo as a separate shared object but still have "-lcurses" work correctly, whereas Arch just breaks everything.

Up until now, dte built fine on Debian, CentOS, Arch, Alpine, Ubuntu, OS X, OpenBSD and FreeBSD just linking with "-lcurses", which was really nice for keeping the makefile simple and portable. After Arch made these changes, I now have to shell out to pkg-config because just linking with "-ltinfo" isn't portable (terminfo lives in curses.so on *BSD).

Forgive me for ranting a little, but it seems like the Arch packaging of ncurses is doing something wrong here...

Thank you for contributing. A recent change in Arch's packaging of ncurses requires ncurses applications to link to tinfo. As such, tweak currently fails to build. I have confirmed that simply appending " -ltinfo" to line 37 of the makefile resolves this issue.

@DaveCode - The distro CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS are now used properly.

Hey, please consider using HTTPS (the download site appears to support it).

I've just adopted the package and updated to the 3.02 release.

Upstream's Makefile clobbers /etc/makepkg.conf compiler flags, and so makes it impossible to build right under chroot? An Arch-specific Makefile might be good.

Love this package.
