[Buildroot] bug in ncurses.mk commit on 3/31/08

I was looking into the error:

-----
ln -sf /usr/share/terminfo /$(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/terminfo
ln: creating symbolic link `$(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/terminfo/terminfo' to
`/usr/share/terminfo': Permission denied
-----

The source of the problem is related to a commit on March 31, 2008.

The first diff line should use $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/share and not the host
system's /usr/share:
-    -cp -dpf $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib/terminfo $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/
+    ln -sf $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/share/terminfo $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/terminfo
