As of right now ncurses doesn't build on the GNU system since
configure doesn't define _GNU_SOURCE, it only gets defined when you
compile ncurses on GNU/Linux.  The proper way to see if $host_os
equals the GNU system or a variant (GNU/Linux or GNU/k*BSD) is to
check that it equals to `*gnu*'.

The attached patch fixes the above problem in two places. The patch
was tested on GNU, GNU/k*bsd and GNU/Linux, and is for ncurses 5.4.

sorry, no. Do your homework first, so you don't have to make requests like this. Start with the ncurses faq. bye.
