The OP is just to lazy to do the homework.

$ grep "ncurses (5" /var/log/pacman.log | grep "> 6"
[2015-09-18 15:59] [ALPM] upgraded ncurses (5.9-7 -> 6.0-3)
[2015-09-18 18:31] [ALPM] upgraded lib32-ncurses (5.9-3 -> 6.0-2)

The package could be build against the upgraded lib.

There is an AUR comment:

"Jonhoo commented on 2015-09-18 15:20

A pkgrel bump to force recompile with ncurses 6 would be appreciated."

I won't comment the comment, however, reading it makes everybody aware,
even when missing the forest for the trees, that taking care of soname
issues should solve the problem.

It requires less than 1 minute using a search engine and the OP could
have found out everything without sending a request.
