no - the problem is that Cygwin's package for ncurses is mildy broken.
It installs the ncurses headers in /usr/include/ncurses and adds a symbolic
link for the curses.h file from /usr/include.  But for whatever reason
(no good ones come to mind, other than that the packager doesn't understand
the difference between term.h and termcap.h), it omits a link for term.h

Adding that link should make things work (for other programs, too ;-)

Perhaps if you complain to the package maintainer, it might get fixed.
I got no response.
