 ncurses vs. curses ?

 # ls -la /usr/lib/libcurses*
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Mar 25 01:55 /usr/lib/libcurses.a ->
 libncurses.a
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Mar 25 01:56 /usr/lib/libcurses.so ->
 libncurses.so.5.5
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Mar 25 01:56 /usr/lib/libcursesw.a ->
 libncursesw.a
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Mar 25 01:56 /usr/lib/libcursesw.so ->
 libncursesw.so.5.5
 
 Maybe we should check for ncurses in the libvirt configure script.
