configure script fails because it can't find function tgetent (in ncurses,
curses or termcap). My home system, using somewhat older libraries, has
tgetenv in libncurses.1.9.9e. OTOH, libncurses-4.2 don't have it.
Just try to build on the wrong combination of RedHat 5.1 and 6.0.
>MySQL support: none
>Synopsis: RedHat libraries don't have tgetent function any more

PC with Linux; RedHat somewhere between 5.1 and 6.0 (upgrade was a bit
disorganized and mysql was one of the things that stopped working,
but now it seems everything except mysql is back to normal).
