ncurses comes in two flavors - in pkgsrc, I think you need the "ncursew" 
and then (when running the configure script) to use the 
"--with-screen=ncursesw" option.

If you look at the files in the PACKAGE directory of lynx's sources,
you will find "lynx.spec" and debian/rules files showing typical options
that I use for configuring lynx.
