BASE ncurses vs devel/ncurses

I'm facing a weird issue with ncurses. I'm using together
x11/rxvt-unicode and mail/mutt. rxvt-unicode depends on devel/ncurses
but not mutt.
On a system where devel/ncurses is installed mutt -v reports:
ncurses: ncurses 5.9.20110404 (compiled with 5.7)
On a system where devel/ncurses is _not_ installed mutt -v reports:
ncurses: ncurses 5.7.20081102 (compiled with 5.7)
I wondered if there is a way to force Mutt to use the BASE ncurses
rather than devel/ncurses when it's installed because some things
don't work properly (color codes, ...) with devel/ncurses .. ? What's
the "proper" way to resolve this problem ?
