It's dying before it ever gets to ncurses.  If ncurses does
provide termcap, then perhaps it should be built before gdb.
Specifically, it's at the gdb-6.8/common/sim/configure step.
I've patched the config and code to build termcap so the header
file and library are in the build tree, but it still is not
being found by gdb configure.  I even added the --libdir 
configure option, but it's not helping.

I knew it had to be something easy :-)
