 link to ada binding doc in separate package
 The Ada binding is packaged separately, there is no need to duplicate
 the documentation in ncurses-doc. Replace the internal link with a
 hyperlink.

 remove "rin" from screen-256color
 Some (many?) tmux users have set their TERM environment variable to
 screen-256color, and tmux before version 3.0 does not deal with "rin"
 correctly.  So drop "rin" from screen-256color, at least until tmux
 3.0 is released.

 debian changes to xterm* terminfo entries
 The "rep" feature has been removed from xterm-new and derived terminfo
 descriptions, as it causes compatibility problems with older terminal
 emulators.
 .
 The xterm-debian terminfo entry is provided as an alias for xterm, as
 some ancient Debian systems used xterm-debian as $TERM.

 omit -l part from ncurses6{w,}-config output
 "ncurses6-config --libs" includes a "-L" part which is not needed
 since the library is installed in a directory in the default linker
 search path.
 .
 Upstream omits the -L part if $libdir is in a standard directory,
 however the list of standard directories is determined at build time
 and architecture dependent, breaking multiarch co-installability.
 Until there is a way to obtain the multiarch path without running
 dpkg-architecture our patch is not upstreamable.
