Oh, I'm confused. It's a typo.
It's "libcurses.a", not "libncurses.a". "libcurses.a"
is a link that is in /lib (or /lib64) and stay here,
because the 'mv' command don't move it. So the link is
broken (perhaps it has no consequences, but it's not
very clean).
So the command should be:

Excuse me for the confusion.
