In light of above the symlink is the best way to go. It seems to work on
every single system so far.

No, we need LFS-2.4.3 that lets you create the missing symlink during bash's
If you get errors when compiling bash that tell you about not being able to
find "-lcurses" run these two commands to create the missing symlink (so far
we have not
enountered one distribution that has this libncurses symlink setup properly,
except for LFS systems where it is setup properly):
cd /usr/lib &&
ln -s libncurses.a libcurses.a
