In debian, is not installed unless libncurses-dev is also installed. Therefore, programs should open directly.

However, this is not possible with ltdl_openext. Would a patch be accepted to extend ltdl_openext("libncurses.5") like this:

- of course, opening "libncurses.5" tries to open and first

- on some systems it might succeed, as on Darwin. on other it will fail, but it will recognize the soversion suffix and try to open

- failing to do so, it will try and check the current/age items to detect if the library supports that soversion.
