By the way the following statements are quite incorrect:

"MC "could" be built with ncurses, but its maintainers have been not
much interested in maintaining that configuration(*)."

"(*) equally, since MC for quite a while used gcc-specific code which 
would not compile with an ANSI C compiler, I was uninterested in wasting 
much time with it. "

I myself am using MC with ncurses most of the tmie. The Cygwin package
for MC, which I maintain, is compiled against ncurses. I have spent
considerable amount of time tracking bugs in MC to make it work
correct with ncurses.

I build MC on my Solaris 10 machine on a regular basis with Sun's
compiler. I've also built MC on Tru64 with Compaq/HP's compiler.

You seem to try to spread misinformation regarding MC
on every possible occasion as you did in the Debian bug
tracking system.
