It's more than a strange misspelling.  If you just change the 'ifndef'
to 'ifdef', the result is that the code thet should be used for Unix
(at least) gets skipped.  That's certainly not the right way to correct

Someone, it seems, forgot to provide an '#else' branch for _WINDOWS.
Maybe the

  #if defined (DOSPATH) && defined (NCURSES)
  #endif /* DOSPATH */

stuff that follows is supposed to be a substitute for that, in
some way.
It is something you _WINDOWS / DOSPATH guys have to sort out
(It seems you can't even agree on which preprocessor symbols
to test...), but at least don't take the UNIX and VMS code
with you into the chaos.

Sorry - that may be a time-honored method for distributing stuff, but
don't expect that it is today usable for most folks.  (You really
should get 'diff'.)
