MySQL needs ncurses-devel to compile, however the .spec file does not say this. "rpmbuild --rebuild" thus begins compiling, but fails.

How to repeat:
Try to rebuild MySQL rpm without ncurses-devel installed.

Suggested fix:
Update .spec file.

Thanks for the hint - this can be fixed by adding the following
to the RPM spec file:

BuildPrereq: ncurses-devel

I've now done this in the 4.0 tree - it will be propagated into the other BK
trees from there with the next merge (which happens before every release).
