The most important line in the above output is this one:

> /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lncurses

This means that you are missing some essential library files to build the
application. In this particular case, you will need to have the development
headers of ncurses installed.

If you're on a linux distribution, it will probably feature a package called
ncurses-dev or libncurses-devel or something like that. On my Debian
GNU/Linux  system, the exact name is `libncurses5-dev'.

If your system does not feature a package containing header files for
ncurses, you will need to download and install them manually. A quick google
search for ncurses will point you to the right location.

I hope this information is of some help to you.
