If you mean you're running those commands from a different system, not 
from the one that's having the problem, then those results mean nothing. 
Unless I'm misreading you and you mean that you have completed building 
that system and have booted it...

That depends on what you did - did you take the suggestion to manually 
add to LDFLAGS? If so, and if it wouldn't work otherwise, then yes, 
there is definitely something wrong with your system. Unfortunately the 
person who suggested that apparently emailed you personally rather than 
mailing the list, so I don't know else they might have told you - all I 
know is that adding to LDFLAGS is not a solution. There is one other 
possibility - what do you see with "ls -l /usr/lib/libncurses*"?
