Updating emacs fails

For at least several weeks, attempts to rebuild emacs from ports fails
with an odd linker error saying it can't find symbols in the termcap
library.  I poked around a little, the makefile does include the
appropriate library and adding it again at the end of the line in
the makefile didn't help.

This is on 8.2, building it with no nonstandard options I'm aware of.
