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

Yes - the message seems to indicate that /usr/local/bin/sed is linked with ncurses (why I don't know since "sed" should live in /usr/bin and not have a dependency upon ncurses). You've replaced the libncurses symbolic link so it points to the library as compiled by libtool.

Checking - rerunning that build, I see that the problem is (something I have recently on my to-do list to review) that the ncurses library is configured to split-out the terminfo stuff as a separate library. That means that applications linked with -lncurses won't handle the combined -lncurses -ltinfo which is needed in your configuration. In the options list, that's done by the --with-termlib option.
