That is insanely strange. None of my binaries are linked with ncurses,
only libc, libm, libdb and various X libs. That is for the 3.1 alphas. I
went back and checked the Imakefiles for Siag 3.0.6 and [gt]siag 3.0.3,
and the only one that requires ncurses is tsiag. And the old binary on the
ftp site for 3.0.1 was not linked with ncurses.

No, I can see no reason why that should happen.
