enhanced ctorrent is actual ctorrent from ports.
it doesnt use ncurses.
libssl.so.5 => /usr/lib/libssl.so.5 (0x280a7000)
libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x280e8000)
libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x281db000)
libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x281f4000)
libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x281ff000)
libcrypto.so.5 => /lib/libcrypto.so.5 (0x28306000)
transmission also doesnt use ncurses.
the only one I'm aware of that use ncurses is rtorrent.
