Really? What does 'rpm -q ncurses-devel' say?

These are libraries for handling terminals. One of them is needed so
they are searched one after the other.

BTW, it would be *much* easier to determine the actual cause if you
would post the part of config.log that shows the error. config.log is
created in the directory where you call configure.

BTW2, it would also help if you told us which version of BitchX you're
trying to compile and on which version of SuSE Linux.

BTW3, the suse-programming-e mailing list would have been the right
place to ask such question.


PS: I *do* read the list so extra copies of the reply via PM
are considered hostile acts.
