1) From ./configure --help (ncurses 5.6):

--enable-signed-char    compile with SIGWINCH handler

I do not believe the first line is correct.

agree - that is fixed in

        + correct description of --enable-signed-char in configure --help
          (report by Michail Vidiassov).

(which is in the rollup patches)

2) ./configure fails when cross-compiling if ${BUILD_CC} == ${CC}. I note that on Mac OS X, when cross-compiling for a different architecture, this is precisely what I want, i.e. for BUILD_CC to be the same as CC.

Are the CFLAGS different then?

I can get around this by setting CC=gcc BUILC_CC=cc (where both cc and gcc are links to the same file, in my case /usr/bin/gcc-4.0), but is this behaviour sensible? I can understand that you abort configure if BUILD_CC is undefined, but if the user over-rides it by expressly defining BUILD_CC to be the same as CC, configure should not abort.
