"...and current binutils." -- I don't think binutils is actually at 
fault here, in the sense that there is some bug that needs fixing. 
Without BROKEN_LINKER, the ncurses code tries to do something that is 
just not possible with PE DLLs + the windows runtime loader.

The bug is that ncurses treats BROKEN_LINKER as a private symbol; but in 
fact it should be part of the public headers because it changes the 
external library interface -- and clients need to know about that.

I'm working on a fix to ncurses. Stay tuned.
