Thanks for your recent commit to support datarootdir in ncurses.

I'm sorry, but here comes the next one:

=== configuring in icu-xetex (/tmp/texlive-work/Build/source/work/libs/icu-xetex)
configure: running /bin/sh ../../../libs/icu-xetex/configure '--prefix=/tmp/prefix'  '--with-system-ncurses'
'--with-system-pnglib' '--with-system-t1lib' '--with-system-zlib' '--with-system-gd' '--with-system-freetype2'
'--with-system-icu' '--with-system-freetype' '--disable-multiplatform' '--datarootdir=/tmp/prefix'
'--enable-tetex-build' '--enable-static' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=../../../libs/icu-xetex
configure: error: unrecognized option: --datarootdir=/tmp/prefix
Try `../../../libs/icu-xetex/configure --help' for more information.
configure: error: ../../../libs/icu-xetex/configure failed for icu-xetex
configure: error: ../../libs/configure failed for libs

Best wishes, Peter
