yes, i am. i switched to a redhat-6.2-system now and when i
install using --with-curses the message is exactly the same.
if i install with --with-ncurses there are no errors.
(bash-version is 2.04, downloaded from linuxfromscratch.org)

Nothing bad about it, since ncurses and curses are the same files on your 
harddisk (libcurses* are symlinks to libncurses*)

Are you sure that --with-ncurses worked? If you look at configure's --help 
output it doesn't mention a --with-ncurses option. I'll run a check again, 
perhaps the configure script does know the parameter and uses it. It would
at 
least get rid of people who are having problems with their distribution due 
to the missing libcurses.a symlink.
