In this case, it seems that the linker is finding the version of
ncurses from the host.  Read this post by the ncurses developer (the
bottom part is hilarious):


However, where ncurses is built is after Adjusting the Toolchain, and
both second passes of GCC and Binutils.  The whole temporary toolchain
is in place.  So, it appears as if your toolchain is not working since
it's finding the ncurses version on your host.

Not to disregard you, but I have to believe this is operator error
since this has never been a problem before.

If you want, you can try to make run_tic.sh run verbosely.  Just
change the top line in misc/run_tic.sh to #!/bin/sh -vx.  It'll
produce a ton of output, but maybe that can narrow down the problem.
