Hi there,

does somebody have an idea how to bring a statement like this one from
the ncurses intructions in chapter 6 of the LFS-book most elegant into

for lib in curses ncurses form panel menu ; do \
    rm -vf /usr/lib/lib${lib}.so ; \
    echo "INPUT(-l${lib}w)" >/usr/lib/lib${lib}.so ; \
    ln -sfv lib${lib}w.a /usr/lib/lib${lib}.a ; \
