FreeBSD's linker is a little brain-damaged: unless you link statically,
it will try to use the shared library in /usr/lib.  (I retain that one,
for testing, and build more recent stuff against static libraries on
that platform, do some test-builds with shared libraries, of course).
That is
        setenv LIBS="-L$HOME/lib -lncurses"
        setenv CPPFLAGS="-I$HOME/include -I$HOME/include/ncurses"

I install ncurses (static) under /usr/local on that platform.  To avoid
confusion, I use the ncurses --disable-overwrite option, so the configure
script won't find two matches for <curses.h>.
