Probably Sergej forgot to adopt... Nothing to worry about.

Is your system up-to-date? You need recent ncurses.

% pacman -Q ncurses                    
ncurses 6.0-3
% pacman -Ql ncurses | grep st-256color
ncurses /usr/share/terminfo/s/st-256color

main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
