An install question and a bug

Mandrake Linux 8.1, gcc 2.96, gdb 5.1.1

When I configure the source code for gdb 5.1.1, it says after a while . . .

checking for tgetent in -lterminfo... no
configure: error: Could not find a term library
Configure in /home/salman/softdev/gdb/gdb-5.1.1/gdb failed, exiting.

What is term library?  Where do I install this from?

Here is a bug that I just submitted through the bug reporting database on 
the gdb homepage.  I searched for it in the archives and someone asked the 
exact same question but didn't receive a reply.  Anyone has a solution or 
patch to this?:

Cannot look at global variables inside a C++ namespace
reproducable on 5.0 and 5.1 of gdb

Assuming the code:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

namespace FOO{
  float fSomeVar = 67.8;

namespace BAR{
  float fSomeVar = 27.2;

float fSomeVar = 23.0;

int main()
   FOO::fSomeVar = 100.0;
   BAR::fSomeVar = 200.0;
   fSomeVar = 300.0;

   cout << FOO::fSomeVar << endl;
   cout << BAR::fSomeVar << endl;
   cout << fSomeVar << endl;

   return 0;

The gdb output as is follows---Please note that I have tried the string with 
and without single-quotes.  GDB doesn't find the symbol without the 
quotes---with the quotes it is giving me a junk value:
