OK, seems this has been fixed by using a linker script instead of a symlink.

Looks like a -static subpackage popped up since I first looked at this; I think
this is one of those packages that warrants the availability of static libs so I
have no complaints.

I've done a fresh build on my buildsys, which gives me more information than
what was available to us at fudcon.  Here's the current set of rpmlint complaints:

W: ncurses unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libmenuw.so.5.6
/lib64/libdl.so.2
W: ncurses unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libpanel.so.5.6
/lib64/libdl.so.2
W: ncurses unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libform.so.5.6
/lib64/libdl.so.2
W: ncurses unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libformw.so.5.6
/lib64/libdl.so.2
W: ncurses unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libpanelw.so.5.6
/lib64/libdl.so.2
W: ncurses unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libmenu.so.5.6
/lib64/libdl.so.2
   These will only show up if you run rpmlint on the installed package.  I think
they show up because the configure script sticks "-ldl" on the link line for
whatever reason.

E: ncurses-static devel-dependency ncurses-devel
W: ncurses-static no-documentation
W: ncurses-static devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/lib64/libncursesw.a
W: ncurses-static devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/lib64/libmenuw_g.a
   [and several more identical warnings]
   These are all OK.

I have to run now; I'll finish this a bit later.
