that would be created with --disable-overwrite


        If you are installing ncurses on a system which contains another
        development version of curses, or which could be confused by the loader
        for another version, we recommend that you leave out the link to
        -lcurses.  The ncurses library is always available as -lncurses.
        Disabling overwrite also causes the ncurses header files to be
        installed into a subdirectory, e.g., /usr/local/include/ncurses,
        rather than the include directory.  This makes it simpler to avoid
        compile-time conflicts with other versions of curses.h
