testing/ncurses 6.1+20200118-1 now contains terminfo files for alacritty, which conflicts with alacritty-terminfo package.

I have released a new testing/alacritty pkgbase that no longer split out alacritty-terminfo.

Please add replaces=("alacritty-terminfo") into ncurses PKGBUILD so that our user can have a smooth transition.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
testing/ncurses 6.1+20200118-1
