Yes, that sounds ok and, yes, I believe that you are correct that only
cmon requires curses.

No, it is worse than that - the binaries get installed with dynamic
library dependencies pointing to a ".libs" directory - I think, it has
been a while since I looked at this - anyway, they binaries still are
in the "run from the local compile directory mode" not the installed
mode where they should be looking in /usr/pkg/lib as you noted.  The
linker flags look right to me, I suspect that it stems from some
lossage with libtool.  At the moment libtool is a mystery to me, I
need to get my head around what it does and how it does it - at first
look it seems an insanely complex hack for not much benefit.

No, NetBSD no longer has a file on architectures that are
ELF based.  Most NetBSD architectures are ELF or are moving to ELF.

Yes, that bit is correct AFAICT, the -L and -R paths are set on the
linking command and look right to me.

I can get things linked correctly if I munge the link command not to
use the .ra file but put the -l<lib> entries on the command line, I
need to have the libraries installed first but the resultant binaries
do run correctly.
