Version: 5.03-1
Severity: important
User: svenjoac at gmx.de
Usertags: readline-disabled

When built in a clean sid chroot without libncurses5-dev installed,
bacula loses readline support.  From my pbuilder log:

| Configuration on Fri Oct 21 15:28:34 UTC 2011:
| [...]
|    Large file support:	    yes
|    Bacula conio support:    no 
|    readline support:	    no 

Adding libncurses-dev to Build-Depends should avoid this.  However,
consider patching the upstream build system which erroneously believes
that ncurses is necessary for linking with readline.
