"...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.
