If you do not have gawk:
ln -s mawk gawk

If you are using glibc-2.2:
echo -e "/errno.h/ a\\\\\n#include <linux/limits.h>   /* OPEN_MAX */" |
     sed -f - special.c >special.c~
mv            special.c~ special.c

Get rid of the dependance on tex:
../configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
cd doc
sed -e "s/TEX = tex/TEX = :/" -e s/dvips/:/ \
    -e "s/gawk -f \\\$/: -f \\$/" <Makefile >Makefile~
mv Makefile~ Makefile
cd ..

You should now be able to: make && make install

Has anyone installed tex?
Has anyone investigated --with-gpm when configuring ncurses?
