make errors - curses.h not found & problem resolved..

ok, so this should be a no-brainer to most people.  ./configure.. 
./make , use product...so I'm sending this message along for future 
generations of less experienced people like me. 

here's the result of make

(running on a mandrake 8.2 workstation)

I've been running linux/freebsd long enough to figure out there is a 
dependency on the libcurses package.  Installed and make work  just fine
