Only if you define fixing it as turning it back into ncurses 5.x.
Most of the current build issues are from buggy packages that know that
ncurses 5.x is the only version that can ever exist, and therefore can't
see ncurses 6. The correct fix is to fix *those packages*, not to agree
with them that ncurses 5.x is the only legitimate version.
