    11The install scripts for PARI and Python automatically link with `-lncurses` if `/usr/lib/libncurses.so` '''exists''', even though the mere existence of that file doesn't guarantee that it actually can be linked.  This can happen in particular when "cross-compiling" a 32-bit Sage on a 64-bit operating system.

    3 The build of the readline interface of PARI and Python might therefore fail for no good reason.  A solution is to symlink Sage's `libtermcap.a` to `libncurses.a`, such that `-lncurses` will always succeed.
