All this has nothing to do with your original problem.

Please follow fork's advice and run configure --help.  There must be a
termcap related option there.  Please post it here.

What is happening is that emacs is using its own version of the termcap
library that comes with the emacs source.  You must disable that _and_
link with ncurses instead.

Is there a --without-termcap option to configure?
