I'm running CentOS 5.3 (x86_64), and want to install FPC 2.4 on my
machine, preferably from an RPM, but I can't because of a failed
dependency on libtinfo. I've found many references to this problem in
the mailing lists, but am unsure of what the easiest solution is.

1) Can I install the FPC RPM with an option to ignore the missing
dependency (--ignoredeps?)?
2) Is there a compatible RPM which contains libtinfo somewhere?
3) Is there an updated RPM for FPC 2.4.0 which removes the dependency?

Or, do I need to rebuild the RPM from source after removing the
Is it easier to rebuild from an SVN checkout of the correct branch, or
should I use the original source RPM and rebuild from that?

Thanks for your advice.
