It's a Linux system, although with a 2.0-derived kernel and an older gcc
(2.95.3) and glibc (2.1.3).

The config.log is huge, so I've compressed it and placed it for FTP at
ftp://ftp.ocis.net/pub/users/ldeutsch/transient/config.log.gz.  (I'd send
it as MIME, but it looks like there is something in the gnu.org system
that silently eats messages with MIME attachments.)

Looking at the configure script again, the code is looking for a
"/usr/include/ncurses" directory, which doesn't exist on my system.  The
ncurses headers are just in the /usr/include directory itself:
"/usr/include/curses.h", "/usr/include/termcap.h", etc.

No.  There is no -ltermcap or -lcurses on my system.  (I think ncurses
wanted to install a libcurses.so symlink, but I removed that as clutter.)
