Hi,

I am trying to use Valgrind on ARM target. The Valgrind intrenally
supports GDB. To connect to the Valgrind-GDB (i.e, gdbserver) i need
the GDB (host) also to run on arm target. i.e GDB and GDServer both
built with host=arm-linux-gnueabi.

I downloaded latest GDB7.7 and able to build gdbserver, but during
building GDB with host=arm-linux-gnueabi I got the below error. I
searched all over and found that to install libncurses package. I did
that but it didn't work.

My system:
Build-host: Ubuntu-Lucid (10.04) on Virtual-machine with
arm-linux-gnueabi tool chain
Target: ARM OMAP
