it looks for it, presumably because some of the systems on which one
might build mutt have a really old curses library, and getting a much
newer and more functional ncurses library is much easier than getting
the vendor to upgrade.

it doesn't *depend* on ncurses though, so if that fix is actually
determined to be "correct", then the dependencies for mutt will need
to be updated.

i still think it feels wrong.
