As i looked at this error I noticed that the gcc command has
-I/usr/include/ncurses which will force gcc to look their first. So I
propose making it look in /tools first. If you want to do that use this
command for configure.

CFLAGS="-I/tools/include -I/tools/include/ncurses" ./configure
--prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/sbin --host=${LFS_TARGET}
--sysconfdir=/etc --disable-logger --disable-syslogd --disable-whois

Alternatively, you can disable talk, to my knowlege talk is the only
program that uses curses in anyway. so passing --disable-talk to
configure should fix this also.
