Re: 4.6.0-pre1: cant disable ncurses

Hello, Moritz!

I just saw the mc-4.6.0-pre1 announcement and tried to build it on
Solaris 2.6. I have (non-native) ncurses and slang installed on the
machine. But I can't get this version to use either its internal or my
system slang,

I don't understand what it means.  What kind of error do you get?

I can't even do "--without-ncurses", ncurses always gets found and used.

Don't use "--without-ncurses", it makes no sence.  If you have this
problem (ncurses is found and used) when you don't specify
"--without-ncurses", then it's a bug.  Please send me your config.log when
you run "configure" without arguments.  (Reply to the list, I just want
the log in private).

Interestingly enough, a directory no/lib and no/include is being used.
;-) Reason: checks only "if test x$withval != xyes", and
assumes if it's not "yes" I'm sending, it's a path. But I'm sending
"no", because I'm using "--with-slang=/my/path" and "--without-ncurses",
the latter equaling "--with-ncurses=no".

I don't want configure to be so foolproof at the expence of more code and
indentation in

"Works for me", mc in color again :-),

It looks like you are makeing too many implications.  Are you saying that 
mc with ncurses doesn't show the color?  Then it's another bug that should 
be reported properly.  I don't want to decypher your hints.

Since you say that you are checking the archives, you probably saw those 
links already, but I want you to actually read those documents.
