Why did you compile Glibc without the linuxthreads package? The missing
pthread.h file comes from linuxthread. And your ncurses error results from
a missing linuxthreads.

As well as your gcc problem, results from a glibc without linuxthreads.

You can try to install gcc and add the option --enable-threads=none but it
really is a lot better to compile Glibc with linuxthreads. Without threads,
you will find a lot of software just won't run.

add 2>&1 to it and it will copy stderr to stdout
