Since updating ncurses to 6.0.0s20171007 from 6.0_3, weechat configured with weechat.look.eat_newline_glitch no longer works.
weechat.look.eat_newline_glitch is used to allow a terminal to detect long (longer than terminal width) URLs and create hyperlinks. Prior to ncurses 6.0.0s20171007, this functionality worked fine. When upgrading to 6.0_3, it no longer works. Downgrading to 6.0_3 resolves the issue.
I'm not sure if this is a FreeBSD/ncurses 6.0.0s20171007 specific issue, or whether it affects other systems. However, a Linux machine running 6.0+20161126 works just fine.
Is this still an issue?

Yes, this is still an issue with ncurses-6.1.20180728. Downgrading to ncurses-6.0_3 brings back the desired behavior.
Assign to maintainer.
This has never been in tree as far as I can tell and it's not in now either so we can safely close this.

It was committed in r475966
Ahh, it's an option within weechat not ports.
Sorry for the noise
