I haven't seen a distro where ncursesw is installed without a link to
ncurses. Which distribution are you using?

I could add a check for ncursesw, but that's the kind of thing the distro
usually does.

I don't have any trouble finding readline in /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so
after installing it, editing /etc/ld.so.conf, and running ldconfig. I tried
with readline-8.0-beta and bash-5.0-beta, so at least it will be working
when those hit release status.
