There is always more then one way of fixing a problem =)

--with-curses is what the book i using right now, but if your curses
libraries are not setup (or like systems today, not symbolicly linked to
other libaries like ncurses) it isn't going to work, so you can either
use --with-ncurses or you can create the link, whichever you prefer.

Usually it's the distro's fault, as there is no libcurses.a link to
libncurses.a (.a libraries are for static linking) when they do it for

Pick whichever you want to go with, bough will work.
