Yes, that was the solution - I didn't equate -lcurses to the ncurses static

Simon Perreault : I recompiled ncurses prior to posting, but that didn't

wild, alcohol induced 'ln -sf' statement')

I had the same problem. There was no link in /lib from libcurses.a to
This worked for me.
cd /lib
ln -s libncurses.a libcurses.a
