hello Thomas,

To get cchar_t, you have to define _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED, as indicated
in the ncurses manpage.

Maybe this should also be mentioned the e.g. add_wch manpage where it is

There're 14 manpages aside from ncurses which mention cchar_t, and 11 others that mention wchar_t. Seems to me that (since all of them list ncurses in the see-also section) improving the discussion in the main page is a better solution. The types and the #define aren't that close together, for instance.
