Are you in chapter 5 or chapter 6?

If you're still in chapter 5, you probably need to install the
ncurses-dev package or whatever your distro calls it (which distro are
you using?) or just omit the --with-curses from the configure line - it
doesn't actually matter that much for the chapter 5 version as it'll be
overwritten later anyways.

If you're in chapter 6, you've made a mistake with the ncurses
installation.  Specifically, check that you have created the symlinks
