#3576 closed defect (fixed)

gdb 8.0.1 sis does not build on Cygwin

Cygwin no longer has libtermcap. gdb/sim/erc32 needs a patch to find libncurses. Upstream gdb patch already merged.


This ticket is just to contain a patch that applies cleanly to gdb 8.0.1 and to track adding that patch to the RSB.
