Forgive top post. my phone.
I just synlinked so.8 to 7 and several things that failed now work.  Not the fix. But a workaround.

Thanks Bapt!

I tested it on shells/zsh and www/lynx.

For zsh, USE_NCURSES forced it to use /lib/ but
devel/ncurses we still added as a dependency (pkg_delete would not
delete zsh without the -f option)

For lynx, USE_NCURSES made no difference, it still linked
/usr/local/lib/ and /usr/local/lib/
devel/ncurses was also added as a dependency.

I guess in both cases it should link to /lib/ and no
dependency should be added.
