The sunfreeware package for ncurses is broken (becoming an faq).  I've
sent email to the ostensible maintainers of the packages more than once
without receiving a reply.

How are you configuring?  I can guess from the log.
(Lynx's configure script may recover if you specify --with-screen=ncurses)

This line indicates you're using the default screen type, which is 'curses'.
The sunfreeware package installs ncurses conflicting with Sun's curses
library, making it difficult (I've done it) to compile against their
curses library.
