mc fails to link to ncurses built as two libraries: ncurses+tinfo. fails as: ./.libs/libinternal.a(tty-ncurses.o): undefined reference to symbol 'meta' /lib64/libtinfow.so.6: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

Description

When ncurses library is built with --with-termlib option
the resulting installation contains two libraries:

/lib64/libncurses.so.6
/lib64/libncursesw.so.6
/lib64/libtinfo.so.6
/lib64/libtinfow.so.6

As a result mc build fails as:

$ ./configure --with-screen=ncurses
$ make

  CCLD     mc
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/5.4.0/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: ./.libs/libinternal.a(tty-ncurses.o): undefined reference to symbol 'meta'
/lib64/libtinfow.so.6: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

As a workaround gentoo applies the following patch: https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/tree/app-misc/mc/files/mc-4.8.13-tinfo.patch

Perhaps yes, but I'd like to test this patch.
And I'd like to make some formatting: add space after comma: sed -e 's|,\[|, [|g'
