[pkg-wine-party] Bug#804598: wine32: hardcoded dependency on libncurses5

Package: wine32
Version: 1.6.2-22
User: ncurses at packages.debian.org
Usertags: hardcoded-dependency

The wine32 package declares a hardcoded dependency on libncurses5.  This
will become problematic once ncurses changes soname, which will happen
after the Stretch release.

I'm not quite sure how to properly solve this - bug #771104 shows that
there is a good reason for the dependency, and while Debian Policy says
in §8.6 ("these files" refers to symbols and shlibs files in library

| Other packages which use a shared library (for example using
| `dlopen()') should compute appropriate dependencies using these files
| at build time as well.

, there is no advice how to actually do that. :-(
