great news. so should the PR be closed or should it remain in patched state in
order for 7.x to get patched?

another question: how about our ncurses base version in general? should it
remain the ncurses release version with our own patchset or would it be better
to update it more frequently with the official ncurses patchsets? i guess this
is the way acpi in the base dir is being handled. vendor updates get
integrated on the fly into the base dir.

on the other hand acpi isn't in the ports dir. if one needs cutting edge
ncurses there's devel/ncurses-devel. so there's a reason to only to update the
base version of ncurses when a new release is happening (5.8 e.g.).

what's your opinion?
