Well, all is going well. I reinstalled bash, and the ncurses-devel
package, along with all of the ncurses packages.

And finally /usr/include/curses.h is there, so CGDB goes through
configure fine.

I did try your suggestions about for I in *.sh.done; do ./$I; done, 
however, it was producing lot's of errors, so I stopped it.

The problem is now, when I run CGDB, the terminal is being skewed. So
the display is incorrect. However, if I run a preinstalled version, then
it works just fine. So I know it's a problem with the one I'm building.

Has anything recently changed with libncurses? or has anyone seen
problems like this recently?

Thanks, and sorry for all the trouble.
