Hello,

I'm very interested in trying SciGraphica on the mac. I have
installed GTK and GKTextra via fink. Now I've downloaded
the SciGraphica-0.8.0 tarball and run ./configure.
Everything seems to go okay until the script exists with:

checking for tgoto in -ltermcap... no
configure: error: Termcap not found

I've seen a post with this exact problem already, but I
wasn't able to understand the reply ... something about the
way ltermcap was handled in OS 10.1 that required a patch
to remove the reference to ltermcap from the configure
script somewhere. According to that previous post, such a
patch is no longer necessary with OS 10.2. The instruction
was to remove the appropriate lines from the patch file. I
don't understand which file I should edit. Where is the patch
file?

From browsing around, I get the impression that people are
successfully using SciGraphica on the mac. I'd like to be
one of those people! :)

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
