ERR is defined by all curses.h headers that I recall -
(it's part of the interface).

(They may also define 'OK').

Miscellaneous Library Functions                        curses(3X)

     Routines that return an integer return ERR upon failure  and
     an  integer value other than ERR upon successful completion,
     unless otherwise noted in the routine descriptions.
