The users ncurses installation seems to be broken, because

| checking for ncurses.h... no
| checking for initscr in -lncurses... yes

the library exists, but ncurses.h doesn't (or at least is inside a
non-standard location). That WML 1.6.8 succeeded on exactly the same machine I
cannot believe because we've not changed iSelect in the meantime. Instead I
guess the users platform or at least some packages were upgraded in the
meantime. The user should fix the curses installation, IMO.
