I just compiled fine ncurses with the --enable-widec option.
My problem is that this creates libncurses++w.* and libncursesw.*
libraries, but not the libncurses++.* and libncurses.* .
It's not a real problem in itself, but the other softwares needing
ncurses only checked for the libncurses.* files, generally.
I could rebuild ncurses without the option to have the usual library
files created, but I think that it would be better if all the files
could be created in one same time. But I don't know if it's easily
possible. What are your opinions on this ?

It wouldn't be easy - would require a lot of duplication of scripting
(or rethinking how the makefiles are setup).  Note that curses.h is
different (a superset, but still different), so it would have to generate
includes into a different location, the *.awk scripts would be rewritten
to provide various flavors, etc.

Or maybe it could produce a ncursesw.h ?

hmm - to answer the inevitable question, automake wouldn't help...

Too bad :/
I hope someone will succeed doing this one day :S
