'fraid so. From http://invisible-island.net/ncurses/ncurses.faq.html:
"The normal ncurses libraries support 8-bit characters. The ncurses
library can also be configured (--enable-widec) to support
wide-characters (for instance Unicode and the UTF-8 encoding). The
corresponding wide-character ncursesw libraries are source-compatible
with the normal applications. That is, applications must be compiled
and linked against the ncursesw library."
