How to install Ncurses/Terminfo on your system

you may encounter when building a system with different versions of
ncurses:
+ 6.2 (Feb 12, 2020)
+ Interface changes:
+
+ + the terminal database must be compiled with ncurses 6.2 tic;
+ older versions of tic/infocmp will not work. Aside from that,
+ the compiled database will work with older applications.
+
+ + "*.pc" and "ncurses*-config" files give the same information.
+
+ + vwprintw and vwscanw are deprecated.
+
+ Added extensions:
+
+ + These make it simpler to substitute a debug-configuration of the
+ library for non-debug:
+ curses_trace
+ exit_curses
+ exit_terminfo
+
+ Added internal functions (other than "_sp" variants):
+
+ + These provide fast-lookup of common user-defined capabilities:
+ _nc_find_user_entry
+ _nc_get_userdefs_table
+ _nc_get_hash_user
+
+ + This is added to work around compiler-warnings:
+ _nc_fmt_funcptr
+
+ Removed internal functions:
+
+ + _nc_import_termtype
+
+ Modified internal functions:
+
+ + _nc_reserve_pairs no longer returns a value
