(This has nothing to to with OLPC, and everything to do with the distro)

If the libraries move to a different package, we end up with ncurses-devel/
ncurses-libs being multilib, instead of ncurses-devel/ncurses as we have
currently. This causes problems for upgrades with getting a no-longer-multilib
ncurses package off the system for the secondary arch. So, if possible,
keeping the libraries in the 'same' package as it was previously is preferred.
