Hi Roberto,

This is likely because of some compatibility requirement on another 
platform/system. I'll let the MariaDB developers commet on that to be sure.

I already have queued up a 10.0.11 update for slackware-current, it just needs 
to get Pat's approval. If you want I can forward the SlackBuild to you. 
Otherwise it might appear in the -current tree within a couple weeks.

Alternatively you could send a mail to Pat about the missing libtinfo, in case 
it indeed turns out to be a compatibility issue. If one application needs it 
it's likely another one out there does too, so adding compatibility for it 
doesn't sound like a bad idea.
