Re: ncurses-4.1 under b19?

I've had the same problem, but try to do make at 'ncurses' directory first.
After it do make at the source root.

With best regards,

Valery Tulnikov,
Has anyone tried building ncurses-4.1 using b19 yet?  I was able to
build and install it using coolview, but have hit a snag with b19.

../configure appeared to complete successfully, then make terminates
as follows:

173 /e/tmp/ncurses-4.1$ make
cd man; make --unix INSTALL_PREFIX="" all
sh ./ ./terminfo.head ./../include/Caps ./terminfo.tail
cd include; make --unix INSTALL_PREFIX="" all
sh ./ ./Caps >hashsize.h
sh ./ ./Caps >parametrized.h
gawk -f MKterm.h.awk ./Caps > term.h
sh ./ ../include/ncurses_cfg.h term.h
** edit: HAVE_TERMIO_H
cd ncurses; make --unix INSTALL_PREFIX="" all
sh ./ "gcc -E" "gawk" <../include/curses.h | \
        fgrep undef >../include/nomacros.h

Has anyone else seen this?  Any ideas?  I have more details about my
setup below.  Also, I am using the attached 'install' script (by Earnie
in my /bin directory, with the 'install.exe' binary renamed to
