Default F8 - Building vim failu tgetent() not found

On newly installed fedora 8, trying to build vim from the svn
head. Running the configure script produced:

checking for stack_t... (cached) yes
checking whether stack_t has an ss_base field... no
checking --with-tlib argument... empty: automatic terminal library selection
checking for tgetent in -lncurses... (cached) yes
ncurses library is not usable
checking for tgetent in -ltermlib... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... no
checking for tgetent in -lcurses... yes
curses library is not usable
no terminal library found
checking for tgetent()... configure: error: NOT FOUND!
You need to install a terminal library; for example ncurses.
Or specify the name of the library with --with-tlib.


With earlier fedora installs, the vim configure script just
worked.
Any pointers as to what I might have forgotten to install.

[vim7]$ locate libterm
/lib/libtermcap.so.2
/lib/libtermcap.so.2.0.8
[vim7]$ locate libncur
/lib/libncurses.so.5
/lib/libncurses.so.5.6
/usr/lib/libncurses.so
/usr/lib/libncursesw.so
/usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5
/usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5.6


Thanks.

Richard
