Well, I added this code specifically to find some extra libs, not
for ncurses.  I can't remember exactly which libs I cared about but IIRC
there was Xaw3d (used for the scrollbar) as well some image libs.
There could also be gtk libs there for people who want to build with gtk.

AFAIK the reasons I added the code are still valid.  Maybe this only makes
sense for the X11 build and not for the Carbon build, I wouldn't know (I
only build it for X11).
