It makes no sense to me.  If I force everything else to be installed
under /usr/local/ with --prefix= (in order to not override the system
version of curses/ncurses), I certainly don't expect the header files
to be overwritten in /usr/include instead of in /usr/local/include.
Please at least put an adequate warning in INSTALL and the output of
./configure --help.

Any page with a valid SELECT form field "popup" will do (unless it has
a MULTIPLE attribute, or popups are disabled with -popup). 
For an arbitrary example, <URL:>.
