Are you sure you managed to get the hypen between the --with and curses
(--with-curses), I believe I had a similar problem with missing out a hypen
with a space and it coming up with a similar error.
The only other error I had with bash was when i literally typed in the
backslash on the first line it got upset so i just stuck it all on one line.
