Re: Fix tui compilation with Solaris libcurses (PR tui/21482)

I've checked in the cast part now.  Here's the NOMACROS part for
gdb_curses.h.  Tested as before on sparcv9-sun-solaris2.10 (curses) and
amd64-pc-solaris2.12 (ncurses).  Ok too?

Interestingly, with that patch the previous link failure on Solaris
11/12 (missing wattr_on/wattr_off) is gone, too.  This seems to happen
because <ncurses/ncurses.h> no longer defines

/usr/include/ncurses/ncurses.h:#define wattron(win,at)          wattr_on(win, NCURSES_CAST(attr_t, at), NULL)
/usr/include/ncurses/ncurses.h:#define attr_on(a,o)             wattr_on(stdscr,a,o)

and the references to wattron can be satisfied from libcurses just as
from libncurses.
