The easiest approach would be to package the installed version of devel/ncurses,
uninstall devel/ncurses temporarily, build the other port, and then reinstall
devel/ncurses from the package.

Perhaps you can also go to town with -nostdinc / -nostdlib flags to the
compiler toolchain, but that's going to become complicated if the port has
other dependencies which it expects to find under /usr/local/{include,lib}.
