how do you wish errors reported for this package?

I first tried building the package by patching in my own localizations
but the makefile wouldn't build - the WWW/ code couldn't find
errno.h for some reason.  So I gave up on the INSTALLATION instructions
and went to the README.configure.

I tried using the configure to see if that was needed to set things
up.  Unfortunately, I had to set an export CC, as I couldn't get configure
to respect my --without-gcc argument.  Even then, I got stuck:
export CC=cc
lwv26awm (10583) $ ./configure --with-screen=ncurses --without-gcc
creating cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... cc
checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... no
checking how to run the C preprocessor... cc -E
checking for ranlib... ranlib
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for a BSD compatible install... 
/projects/gnu/sparc-sun-solaris2.5.1/bin/ginstall -c
checking for working const... yes
checking for SCO by checking on /usr/bin/scosh
checking for scosh... maybenot
checking if parent-directory references are permitted... yes
checking for screen type... ncurses
checking for ncurses header file... configure: error: not found

I have _no_ idea how to tell configure where my curses (or the slang
for that matter) are installed.  When I did the configure --help I didn't
see that info as an option.
