The autoconf scripts usually manage to find if the system's install
program works.  But I believe it's fooled if you have a $INSTALL
variable in your environment.  In the config.status file, you should
see a line something like

INSTALL="/usr/sbin/install {options}"

if you change it to

INSTALL="{your-path}/install-sh -c"

that is, {your-path} is the absolute path of the source-directory where
your ncurses build is located, and run
followed by a make, that should fix it.
