I am on 1.5_ALPHA2/i386. USE_CURSES is not my concern. All the
errors I had is because HAVE_TRUE_NCURSES is not defined in the
source files even though I specified it in the Makefile under
misc/dialog (See error messages below). Maybe your system has
different n/curse settings. I got ncurses-5.1 installed.
