Anaconda: problem with the readline module under Manjaro

Problem
I tried the Anaconda Python distribution under Manjaro, but there was a problem with the “readline” module:

>>> import readline
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution
As root:

# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s libncursesw.so libncursesw.so.5

It may be an ugly hack, but it solved the issue for me.
