----------------------------------------
book-version = 2.4.2
system = redhat 7.0
user = newbie
----------------------------------------

when i install bash (as on page 51 of pdf) i get this error-msg:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcurses
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bash] Error 1

i started all over again three times, but this still did not work.
after searching the mail-archives i found this solution:
replace "--with-curses" with "--with-ncurses" and the error is gone.

maybe this is a helpful for somebody.
(if i did something bad, please let me know.)
