But if I do that, then where should all the other include files for
ncurses go?  It's really odd for them to be split between /usr/include
and /usr/include/ncurses/ .  However, ncurses is not like readline -- it
doesn't like to install its header files into a subdirectory of
/usr/include.  (e.g. the #include directives for most packages that
depend on ncurses reference <curses.h>, not <ncurses/curses.h>.  This
also goes for the ncurses header files themselves -- they
inter-reference <foo.h>, not <ncurses/foo.h> or "foo.h".
