Subject: [PATCH] check for has_colors symbol in curses lib
Otherwise zsh/curses module won't get built if ncurses was built with
separate tinfo lib.
One could still force-build the module but loading it later yields the
following error message:
failed to load module `zsh/curses': /usr/lib64/zsh/5.7.1/zsh/
undefined symbol: COLORS
That is because the final linker call requires -lncurses(w) but it only
contains -ltinfo(w).
