> Investigating further, it appears that there is no ncurses.pc in the contrib/x86_64-apple-darwin11/lib/pkgconfig directory, Apparently, commit 8494d6cd31987e69dc623ed3557f653cfb1198c0 is supposed to do that, but that no longer seems to work. Is that normal, doctor?

Workaround that worked for me: copy and patch ncursesw.pc from MacPorts into contrib/x86_64-apple-darwin11/lib/pkgconfig (only need to change the prefix to match the actual directory). I suspect this is not the right solution.
