Re-doing the configure & build in a new directory solved the problem for
me. I think the problem had to do with the fact that my previous svn update
on this machine was before Chandler's curses-related changes, and I then
ran 'make update' which used the old configure script. I've updated the PR
- maybe the OP had the same problem.

FWIW, Pete, the --enable-curses option to configure no longer exists.
configure just ignores it. Chandler removed it in r188160.
