Ok, this time I'm trying to make an LFS from Slackware and the very first package gives errors, woopie :)

/usr/i386-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot open -lcurses: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bash] Error 1

What exactly does this mean, why can't it find -lcurses?

Feeling like a true newbie again,
