Provide info to help solve why ncurses-6.0-r1 fails to compile/merge on your system.

Post wgetpaste links to output and build.log : 

* If you need support, post the output of `emerge --info '=sys-libs/ncurses-6.0-r1::gentoo'`,
* the complete build log and the output of `emerge -pqv '=sys-libs/ncurses-6.0-r1::gentoo'`.
* The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/sys-libs/ncurses-6.0-r1/temp/build.log'.
* The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/sys-libs/ncurses-6.0-r1/temp/environment'.

The /var/tmp/portage/sys-libs/ncurses-6.0-r1/temp/build.log is more than 7000 lines 

and the var/tmp files more than 3000 lines are these absolutely necessary?


Ncurses 5.9 is working now, but can not compile 6.0-r1


edit:  its very strange i tried to install ncurses 6.0-r1 and it was installed with no problems!!!!! i can not understand why i didnt do anything different!!
