Just a short explanation: 

In #7384 I used the strict version of the patch for 2.7/3.2 because Thomas Dickey recommended not to load readline+ncurses and ncursesw
at the same time.

Actually the distros should either link readline against libtinfo
(Fedora) or only use ncursesw (DragonFly).

If someone feels confident that on Linux the linker can safely handle
conflicting global symbols in this situation, the patch for 2.6/3.1
could be used.
