I'm trying to upgrade the Debian package to the 20090829 patchlevel, and
in the process I noticed a stray file include/ncurses_dll.h that is
included in the Debian .orig.tar.gz[1], but not in the upstream tarball
from invisible-island.net[2].  So I removed it from the upstream branch
in my git repository[3], but when merging that branch the package did
FTBFS in the install step:

I thought I fixed _that_ in

        + build-fixes for --srcdir (report by Frederic L W Meunier).

(will investigate - thanks)

However, although ncurses_dll.h is listed in the CONFIG_SRC files in the
obj-64/include/Makefile, the install.libs rule wants to install
$(srcdir)/ncurses_dll.h, which does not exist.

In the 5.7 tarball, ncurses_dll.h is included, and ncurses_dll.h.in is

yes - I changed the sources to use the latter since I needed to make
a configure-scripted substitution in one of the header files. ncurses_dll.h would be generated - into the build-tree - so the makefile
had to be altered to reflect that.

        + move definition for NCURSES_WRAPPED_VAR back to ncurses_dll.h, to
          make includes of term.h without curses.h work (report by "Nix").
