Actually CPPFLAGS worked fine for me. And I was using /usr/bin/make, so I'm set 
I guess. I used the LIBS and CPPFLAGS line from your previous message. I'd 
check to see if it worked with the default ncurses, but the load on this 
machine is far too high today.

Should this be added to INSTALLATION? And is 2.8.4 now the current version? still shows 2.8.3, but links to 2.8.4, as has been 
pointed out to me by numerous friends/acquaintences. (I'm the "weird geek" who 
also happens to "not like graphics"... ;)

And now that it works for me, is there anything I should do here to see if we 
can pin this down?
