Description

illumos issue 1168 introduces a new libtermcap "fiter" library
that allows libreadline to pull just what it needs from libcurses,
and do so in a way that does not bind consumers of libreadline
to any particular curses library.

In order to avoid the need to add -ltermcap or -lcurses to all
applications that link with libreadline, we should build our
libreadline to have a dependency on this new filter library.

Note that fixing 1168 is a prerequisite for this issue.

If this had to fix cadaver issue then not:

$ uname -a
SunOS xylabone 5.11 oi_151a5 i86pc i386 i86pc
$ cadaver
ld.so.1: cadaver: fatální: relocation error: file /usr/lib/libreadline.so.5: symbol tgetent: referenced symbol not found
Killed

Unfortunately, looks like the patch didn't work when Jon built it.
I wonder why? When I build with the attached patch in place as

  components/readline/patches/shobj-conf.patch

and then build components/readline, the resulting library shows:
$ elfdump -d build/i86/shlib/libreadline.so.5

Dynamic Section:  .dynamic
     index  tag                value
       [0]  NEEDED            0x30fd              libc.so.1

Note libtermcap.so.1 in the list above, but missing in oi_151a5 (and earlier).

Apparently stuff doesn't get patched if you leave it out of the Makefile!!

Fixed in oi_151a6
