Configure does give a warning when it can't find any curses header files.
I don't know how this detection of slang and/or curses actually works.
If you have suggestions or a patch for how to do this better... I'm all

I changed to give an error instead of a warning and slightly the error message.

Well... the thing is: there's probably a reason why it gives just a warning
and does not fail with an error.  Possibly some other implementations of
curses (maybe on the BSDs?) cannot (or could not) be detected reliably?

But I agree that indeed ./configure should fail when it cannot detect a
curses library (when not configured with --with-slang), so I will apply
a patch similar to yours and we'll see on what platforms things break.

I'm guessing you are Michail Tsiolkas?  (For a Reported-by tag.)
