patch to port
Port seems to work fine with base ncurses.
Yes, mixertui can use the ncurses in base but I chose to use port-ncurses in mainstream
My problem is with the XFCE Terminal render: base ncurses has faded colours and does not show bold characters (xterm seems working nice), others have the same render:
Anyway the big problem is 'responsiveness': base ncurses refreshes re-printing down the screen: the render is horrible, the port version is perfect:
However my FreeBSD-CURRENT is 7/8 months old, base ncurses has version 5 while the port version 6 maybe a build world could solve my problem, alternatively a port option to choose the ncurses version could be a solution.
I have not a strong opinion about it, feel free to choose the best solution.
