I seem to have singularly failed to downgrade to ncurses.5 *well, I *didn't* use the -f flag).

On the other hand, it *does* seem to have kicked the readline.6 upgrade into life along with a handful of other ports directly linked to it.

On the gripping hand, the upgrade outdated is now running alongside me.
