[Bug-ncurses] ncurses 5.1 (20000909/20000917) build failure

Just updated ncurses to 5.1 (first to 20000909, then a few days later to

When building outside the source tree, "make install" fails in two places:

The generated file "<build-dir>/man/edit_man.sh", when generating aliases
for each page, looks for the page source in the local (build) directory,
not the source directory.  Possible change to aclocal.m4:

The file "misc/run_tic.sh" is generated, and therefore exists in
"<build-dir>/misc", not $(srcdir).  Possible change to misc/Makefile.in:

The misc/Makefile.in change is tested, as it requires no other changes.
The aclocal.m4 change is not tested, as my autoconf is 2.13, not a
snapshot.  However, I did make the (hopefully) equivalent change to
configure, and it generated a man/edit_man.sh that did work.

Thanks for ncurses,

Experimental observation suggests that this isn't true if double-clicking
is involved.                    -- Lionel, Malcolm Ray, in a.s.r.
