Could you give a bit more information? How did you diagnose the problem?
I've just compiled and installed ncurses without error. I can at least
call those three programs without any arguments just fine, but I didn't
do any in-depth testing. Unfortunately, ncurses doesn't come with any
built-in tests. Did you have to do something more complicated to
encounter the linking problem?

Ok thanks. Once we sort out what the problem actually is, I'm going to
have to think about how best to do this; I think we should avoid having
the build scripts remove cookies. We'll probably have to do some
"pre-build" and "post-install" steps.
