[Lynx-dev] lynx 2.8.7 auto-configure blows up on UnixWare

Years back I installed Lynx 2.8.4 on UnixWare 2.1.2 (SVR4.2MP).
It built and runs great.  Thought it might be time to upgrade.

Just tried to install and build lynx 2.8.7 on the same platform
using auto-configure.  configure blew up with the message:

        checking if we have identified curses headers... none

The message is unhelpful and there doesn't seem to be anything
related in the PROBLEMS doc file or in lynx.cfg.   Hence I am
contacting your team.

The curses headers files are right where they should be:

So is the library:

How can I tell configure where to find these files or to ignore
the error?

I've never had any trouble building C apps that use curses on this
platform: just #include <curses.h> and compile with -lcurses.

Sorry to bother you, but it should build on genuine SysV UNIX
from USL (pre-SCO).   I figured you'd want to know about.
