[wdiff-bugs] wdiff 0.5.94: Can't link properly with ncurses

In wdiff 0.5, I did this:

LIBS=-lncurses ./configure

and got an executable "wdiff" which used ncurses.

If I do the same with version 0.5.94, the executable is also linked
against ncurses, but apparently it uses none of its symbols.

LIBS=-lncurses ./configure
dpkg-shlibdeps src/wdiff
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: dependency on libncurses.so.5 could be avoided if 
"src/wdiff" were not uselessly linked against it (they use none of its symbols).

(the dpkg-shlibdeps program is the one that debian uses to calculate Depends
automatically, this is how I discovered that there was something wrong).

I would suggest that configure and friends are modified so that

./configure --with-ncurses

just works.
