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

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