The included macro/curses.m4 uses only LDFLAGS for both "-L" and "-l",
which is pasted before the conftest.c file and not LIBS for "-l", which
would be correctly pasted after, thus the library is not found (I
already wrote upstream to ask to properly patch it).
Except for a dirty-but-effective hack to add LDFLAGS in /ac_link=/ lines
in configure (least patch lines approach, changing the m4 macro and then
autoreconfiguring would generate a HUGE one), it compiles and works

I'd say the old 0.6.6p1 can safely be deleted.

setup.hint (unchanged):
sdesc: "A lynx-like info and man page viewer"
ldesc: "Pinfo is an info file viewer. Pinfo is similar in use to lynx.
It has similar key movements, and gives similar intuition.
You just move across info nodes, and select links, follow
them... Well, you know how it is when you view html with
lynx. :)
It supports as many colors, as it could.
Pinfo also supports viewing of manual pages -- they're
colorised like in the midnight commander's viewer, and
additionaly they are hypertextualized (i.e. when pinfo
encounters a reference of form manualname (n), then you
can press enter there, and voila -- you're on the page
for `manualname'.
Keyboard and colors are fully configurable.
Pinfo supports URL's embedded into info documents and man
pages. To be precise, supported URL's are mailto, ftp, http."
