Ah.  Yes, that would be superior.

I notice that configure.in does not have an AC_SEARCH_LIBS for tigetstr,
only for tgetent.  That's why the ncurses library is never found on my
system -- the way configure.in is currently organized, tigetstr will be
found only if it is in the same library in which tgetent is found; and
termcap is always searched first except on aix, hpux, and solaris, so for
most systems that have termcap the zsh/terminfo module will be disabled.

Independent of linking modules with their own libraries, what's the right
way to deal with this?
