why was abi 5 dropped? it's still possible to build it with 6.0, fedora 
does that.

and while at it, perhaps some restructuring, like having different 
packages (subpackage(s)) for abi5 and abi6? name suggestions?

ncurses-libs for abi6?
ncurses-libs5, ncurses5-libs, ncurses-compat-libs, compat-ncurses-libs 
for abi5?

ps: i think base terminfo should be also placed to some subpackage for 
noarch (ncurses-base? terminfo-minimal?)
