 I wasn't going to bother replying, because Chris has already done
so.  But the reference to lfs-dev perhaps needs further explanation.

 In this context, I used lfs-dev to mean the development book.  Your
subject mentions ncurses-5.7, the last LFS release used 5.6, so I
assumed you were following the development book.
