Are you talking about an /etc/postinstall script as part of ncurses? 
(e.g. Are you talking to me?)  If so, I don't think it's necessary: when
upgrading a package, setup *unintalls* all files related to the old
version, and then installs the new version.  That should clean up any
cruft from ncurses in /usr/include, right?
