Additional info:
* package version(s): lua-posix 32-3
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
[root@frege ~]# ldd /usr/lib/lua/5.2/ (0x00007fffd19fe000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f77802e0000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f77800a8000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f777fcfa000)
/usr/lib64/ (0x00007f7780756000)
[root@frege ~]#

I got an information from the upstream author of both zile and luaposix, that lua-posix should depend on an curses flavor, ncurse in Arch Linux. See

Not sure why namcap does not tell so.

It doesn't because lua-posix depends on lua, which depends on readline, which depends on ncurses. It's already in the dependency chain.
