Sorry, just realized I had not posted any reply. For Nethack, it was just a setting that was turned off, and for MC, it was just an option that you could add. This had nothing to do with ncurses at all.

I am using the tty terminals. And it is not just MC. I have also had trouble with nethack, but the problems aren't as bad, because nethack only uses ncurses for terminal colors. For MC, I believe that the major color that is supposed to be there is blue. I will try to compile it again, and will send you my results.

Can you be more specific?
In your example you use MC and are trying to use function keys.
What terminal were you using?  xterm or something else?

I could not reproduce your problem.  I performed the following:
git clone git://github.com/MidnightCommander/mc.git
./configure --with-screen=ncurses

I was able to move up and down with ctrl-n/ctrl-p.
Open a file with F3.
Page up and down, move from file to file.
Close the file with F3.
Close the program with F10.

If there were supposed to be colors, I wouldn't know, I've no idea
what it is supposed to look like.
