Your package ncurses-git [1] has been flagged out-of-date by shoober420 [2]:

Please update the PKGBUILD to reflect the official repo build options.

No guidelines ever state that git packages should blind copy all build options from non git packages nor it is required to keep them in line with official packages.

Please state in what way the build result is unexpected and how would you expect to correct it.

I also have an up to date PKGBUILD ready and will adopt.

I have updated the PKGBUILD to more closely match the official ncurses package. More specifically, I've updated the ./configure invocation, and changed depends and pkgdesc. I've also dropped the staticlibs option as that is generally no longer used with Arch packages.
