  The real question is how these got there.  They aren't part of any Cygwin
package.  They must have been there already, for some reason.  You should
probably just get rid of them.

  Add "-I /usr/include/ncurses" to your compile commands.  I'm not sure why
the layout is a bit different between Cygwin and Linux, I guess it's just one
of those things.  If you check the cygwin-specific docs for the package
(/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/ncurses.README), you'll see it says to use the -I option.
