Hi, I think we should use ncurses from [core] instead of termcap as a dependency.

Thanks, Dknight. Updated the package as described in my previous comment. Also bumped up the version to 1.0.11.

You can take ownership of this package now. I created the PKGBUILD because I needed this package. You can handle it in a better way as it seems.

Hi, this PKGBUILD isn't made correctly. Try installing it, then run octave. Type `pkg list` and notice that octave installed the package in the directory where you built it. If you remove that directory, you will lose the package, and screw up octave's package database.

The only proper solution, as far as I could discover, is to write the PKGBUILD in this way:

And use this install script (name it octave-miscellaneous.install):

In this way, the package installs an extra .tar.gz but who cares, it's 100kb. But at least the package actually works.

Can you please make the above changes to AUR, or if you don't have the time assign the package to me.
