Usertags: ncurses5-config

The ncurses development packages are going to see a change after the
Stretch release, ncursesw5-config will be replaced by ncursesw6-config.
Your package disables the ncurses frontend if ncursesw5-config is not
present on the build system.  From my pbuilder log:

| checking for ncursesw5-config... no
| checking for ncurses - wide char support... no
| *** The ncursesw5-config script installed by ncursesw could not be found
| *** If ncursesw was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
| *** your path, or set the NCURSES_CONFIG environment variable to the
| *** full path to ncursesw5-config.
| [...]
| -- Frontends --
| - Curses                                  No; missing libraries

The archlinux people did[1]

sed -i 's/ncursesw5-config/ncursesw6-config/g' acinclude.m4

which obviously only works if

a) ncurses actually starts shipping ncursesw6-config, and
b) angband regenerates the configure script, e.g. with dh_autoreconf.
