[1.7] Updated: tack-1.06-11

The tack program is a diagnostic that is designed to create and verify
the correctness of terminfo entries.  This program can be used to create
new terminal descriptions that are not included in the standard terminfo
database.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-3 ]]

tack was distributed as part of the ncurses package until (upstream)
5.7, when it was spun out into its own package.  Because cygwin's
ncurses package(s) have recently been updated to 5.7, the new versions
are "deficient" compared to the old ones.  This package remedies that.

This release is cygwin-1.7 specific.  There is a different release for
cygwin-1.5.


CHANGES (since 1.06-10)
========================
o Rebuilt against ncurses-5.7-2 (and libncurses9)

NOTE: the binary still reports that it is version 1.05. This is an
upstream bug that I forgot to fix with this release.
