hledger 1.4-2 complains about a missing library (libtinfo.6). This occurs with or without arguments:

> hledger: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

$ ls /usr/lib/ | grep
> 1

$ lddtree $(which hledger)
...snip... => None

Installing libtinfo from AUR ( resolves the issue.

Additional info:
* package version 1.4-2

Steps to reproduce:
- install/update to 1.4-2
- run `hledger` or any subcommand

- install AUR libtinfo


PS: Apologies is this is a PEBCAK issue; I'm not familiar with reporting bugs and I'm not sure if this qualifies as one as it's trivially solvable via installing the AUR package. Perhaps there should be a libtinfo / ncurses dependency in this package?
This task depends upon

The issue here is simply that it needs the version of ncurses that's still in the testing repo

testing/ncurses has been moved to [core].
