Yann, Bryan, all,

since now some people claimed to be able to use ct-ng on a mac
without (reporting) a menuconfig-arrow-key problem, I tested it once again.

For short: This patch apparently is not nessecary anymore.

Long version for Bryan et.al.:
I was surprised to find that the only mac I am normally testing ct-ng on happened
to be the only mac still suffering from the broken ncurses problem
of dysfunctional cursor keys (introduced in 10.6.3, i.e. unfortunately
at the time I did the original port of ct-ng to MacOS; at this time,
around spring 2010, on a different machine).

I finally found out that the ncurses problem is claimed to
having been fixed by apple in 10.6.4.
(e.g. http://www.mail-archive.com/cmake@cmake.org/msg29471.html )

Interestingly enough, all of my macs (including the one that still had the problem)
are claiming to run 10.6.[78]
The only difference I'm aware of is that the no-cursor-key-mac is the only one
that was delivered with that problem preinstalled (i.e. preinstalled 10.6.3).
All others are older or newer.
I'm inclined to blame apple's system update software since I cannot remember
to have fiddled with the libraries in /usr/lib at any time (up to now), and definitely
I didn't undo any automatic changes (don't even know if that's possible).

Anyway, sorry for the confusion, be it mine or apple's fault.
