Thank you!!  I have successfully built cgps now, after installing libncurses5-dev.

I'm still hoping for help with the other half of my question -- namely, what I need to do in order for gpsd to interpret my GPS's output in the correct era (2019, not 2000) -- or if this is even possible with my GPS unit (I still don't know what its firmware version is, the DEVICES info from gpspipe doesn't seem to say).  Just in case it helps, I'm including the text of my previous message below.

Replying to Gary E. Miller's questions:

I have libncurses5, libncursesw5, ncurses-base, ncurses-bin, ncurses-term, and libtinfo5 installed on this machine. But scons still says curses.h isn't present, so it's turning off ncurses support.  Is something missing here which, if installed, would give me a curses.h file?

xgps works, and it looks nifty -- thanks -- but I would still like to be able to use cgps.

Here is the DEVICES line when I run "gpspipe -w":

{"class":"DEVICES","devices":[{"class":"DEVICE","path":"/dev/gps0","driver":"Garmin NMEA","activated":"2019-12-03T04:06:12.000Z","flags":1,"native":0,"bps":19200,"parity":"N","stopbits":1,"cycle":1.00}]}

From running "gpspipe -r" for a while, I can see $GPRMC, $GPGGA, $GPGSA, $GPGSV, and $PGRME sentences.

When I run "gpspipe -w" for a while, I see class values of TPV, SKY, PRN, and PPS.
