You may want to revisit ncurses. You warning about term.h missing could be due 
to a problem with the ncurses install. Maybe run configure again and make sure 
that it detects ncurses.h.

You should see something like:
checking ncurses.h usability... yes
checking ncurses.h presence... yes
checking for ncurses.h... yes
checking for initscr in -lncursesw... no
checking for initscr in -lncurses... yes
