it was doing that because it found libncurses during configure, but
not ncurses.h. the reason was that LDFLAGS contained /usr/pkg/lib
during the configuration, but CPPFLAGS didn't contain /usr/pkg/include.
after updating my sources, configure was properly taught to find the
newer netbsd curses headers and libraries, and the problem went away.
