The ncurses interface does not show text after recent ncurses upgrade (v: 5.8-1)

Additional info:
At the moment, it should affects all version, but specifically the latest release: 2010_07_R1-1. But this bug has been reported and fixed upstream and has been patched in the svn build.

Steps to reproduce:
Compiling kismet 2010_07_R1-1 with updated ncurses will reproduce bug. Falconindy at #archlinux on freenode shared this line of code to patch the pkgbuild until new release.

sed -i 's/newwin(0, 0/newwin(1, 1/' "$srcdir/kismet-$_realver/kis_panel_widgets.cc"

This task depends upon
