This was the failure. It's still looking in /tools/lib, and we don't
build the wide character libncursesw in Ch. 5. See below. BTW, thanks
for including the sanity check. Always helpful.

OK, so libncursesw is there, but not in /tools.

Uh oh. ld is still looking in /tools.

So is gcc. Try the sanity check again, but add in -lncursesw and
you'll see it fail just like is happening for tic. Also `ldd tic'
would show this.

Looks like you missed the toolchain adjustment somehow. I imagine this
is exactly the same thing that happened to the other guy (and you in
Ch. 5). I've gotta remember this for future reference. Possible FAQ
material since it comes up from time to time.
