When I try to install haskell platform 64 bit on a x86_64 debian etch I get
the following error after :

"make install":

/usr/bin/install -c -m 755 -d "/usr/local/lib/ghc-6.12.3/package.conf.d"
"/usr/local/lib/ghc-6.12.3/ghc-pkg" --force --global-conf
"/usr/local/lib/ghc-6.12.3/package.conf.d" update
/usr/local/lib/ghc-6.12.3/ghc-pkg: error while loading shared libraries:
libtinfo.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [install_packages] Error 127
make: *** [install] Error 2

I have no good strategy to locate the needed library.  A quick google search
yielded ncurses, but I have already installed it, and it doesn't contain
that binary.
Furthermore configure doesn't yield any errors. And a dependency on ncurses
does seem quite strange doesn't it ?

thans in advance,
