74 <para>This tells Ncurses to install its header files into
75 <filename class="directory">/tools/include</filename>, instead of
76 <filename class="directory">/tools/include/ncurses</filename>, to
77 ensure that other packages can find the Ncurses headers

85 <para>This switch causes wide-character libraries (e.g., <filename

87 to be built instead of normal ones (e.g., <filename
88 class="libraryfile">libncurses.so.&ncurses-version;</filename>).
89 These wide-character libraries are usable in both multibyte and
90 traditional 8-bit locales, while normal libraries work properly
91 only in 8-bit locales. Wide-character and normal libraries are
92 source-compatible, but not binary-compatible.</para>
