This one is definitely my fault.  I just noticed that this was a problem on
a mac68k, which is still an a.out platform. does some, uh,
"interesting", things to deal with ncurses/curses on a newer system, but it's
breaking due to the way that vim finds out which ncurses package to use.
I'll handle this PR since I'm familiar with the solution.
