Update ncurses in base system?

Apparently, the ncurses version in the base system is 5.2, while there
is a newer 5.3 port available.

Would it make sense to import the 5.3 ncurses into the base system?

There are some ports (mail/cone) that need 5.3 and that won't work with
FreeBSD 4 either way (missing i18n/l10n features in libc.so.4 that are
in libc.so.5).

Thanks in advance,

Matthias Andree
