I think that the module sys_ioctl of the gnulib is useful for ncurses library because the <sys/ioctl.h> file can to be required by ncurses.
And by gnulib manual, the <sys/ioctl.h> header file is missing on mingw and MSVC9 platforms (page 411, chapter 10 !). It can to be obtained at:
By the way, the ncurses library could use this module of the gnulib.

I think that the porting of ncurses library to mingw could to be more easy with the gnulib library (GNU Portability Library).
What do you think about it?
