your configure says:

    checking for tparm in -lncurses... no

but that's not correct.  libncurses should certainly contain that
symbol.  I get a 'yes' there on my stable/8 machine.  As -lncurses is
part of your LDFLAGS ... hmmm... do you have libncurses on your system
anywhere other than in /lib ?
