Re: Install ncurses 5.9 and 6.0 on the same FreeBSD box?

From my searches, it looks like ncurses 6.0 is source-compatible with 5.9, but not binary-compatible. So if you're building GT.M from source, it should still work, but if you've gotten an old binary build from somewhere, you'll have troubles. I had a very quick scroll through the code you linked to...

Install ncurses 5.9 and 6.0 on the same FreeBSD box?

I'm trying to install GT.M for FreeBSD . One of the dependencies of this package is ncurses. When I used sudo pkg install ncurses on my BSD box, it installed ncurses 6.0. However, this GT.M implementation specifically looks for ncurses 5.9, so it GT.M won't run. I'm still a BSD n00b, so how can I ei...
