7.2-RELEASE #0. Generic kernel. Full installation from DVD.

I'm trying to install ncurses because I want to run FoxPro Unix, which expects a terminfo database.

I did this:

# cd /usr/src/contrib/ncurses [Enter]
# ./configure [Enter]

The last line of output is

config.status: error: cannot find input file: test/Makefile.in

I contacted the authors and I got a reply stating: "It looks as if the source-tree is incomplete " and an alternative approach to installation.

How should I proceed? Thanks in advance.
