This is fine. You're not root, you can't update the host's linker cache.

This is the problem. In order to populate /tools/share/terminfo, it's
trying to run the newly built tic from within the source directory.
Apparently, you're new tic is segfaulting for some reason. I think you
can recreate this error with the following command (pulled from
misc/run-tic.sh and misc/shlib):

cd ncurses-5.5
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./progs:./lib ./progs/tic -x -s -o
/tools/share/terminfo misc/terminfo.tmp

Additionally, tic takes a -v verbose parameter, so you could add that
into the command to see what's going on. Other than that, I don't know
what to say. I don't know why building tic would be a problem.
