- Fix ppc64 build (bnc#893275 bnc#871128)
  Add ncurses-devel as build dependency to build with -ltinfo
Comment 1 Michal Srb 2018-02-23 12:25:47 UTC
The "Support" component in LLVM requires ncurses. At the times of bnc#893275 and bnc#871128 the LLVM components were built as static libraries. Mesa linked to the libLLVMSupport.a library, so it needed to dynamically link with the libtinfo to prevent unresolved symbols.

But nowadays LLVM is built as dynamic library, so Mesa does not need to provide its dependencies to it. We can remove this build dependency.
