It occurs to me that installing a libtool'd ncurses on top of a non-libtool'd
ncurses is not simple.  (The configure script and makefiles only know about
installing onto a similar system).

For instance, on this system, it would try to add these entries to /usr/lib:

        libncurses.so -> libncurses.so.5.0.4
libncurses.so.5 -> libncurses.so.5.0.4
But I already have

        libncurses.so -> /lib/libncurses.so.5
        libncurses.so.5 -> libncurses.so

and in /lib

        libncurses.so.5 -> libncurses.so.5.4

Technically that's in the realm of libtool, and as you see, it doesn't
manage it either.  I do fixups manually, from my directory editor, but
noting that various programs such as your shell are dependent upon ncurses,
it's a little tricky to do.  (Why does sed use ncurses?)

Here is what I have now :

# locate libncurses.

# ls -la /usr/lib/libncurses.*
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 432938 Nov 13  2002 /usr/lib/libncurses.a

undefined symbol: TABSIZE

hmm - other than seeing that it's attempting to use libtool, I can't tell
much about it.  (The ".libs/i" is definitely an error, but whether libtool
or some other cause, I cannot say).  Perhaps seeing the config.status and
config.log would help.

Ok I'm attaching them to this email.

I still don't see a cause for the ".libs/i".

Me neither... but maybe do you have an idea for the TABSIZE symbol ?
