I fixed that months ago.  ncurses test programs now install into 
/usr/lib/ncurses/; none of the current ncurses sub-packages install 
anything into subdirs of /usr/bin/.

FWIW, I think the /opt tree is PRECISELY the right thing to do with 
regards to the un-optimized lapack DLLs.  With PATH manipulations, 
binaries like octave.exe can find the "appropriate" lapack DLLs -- 
unoptimized if /opt/lapack/bin is the only dir in PATH containing them; 
optimized if the local administrator installs optimized versions 
somewhere (/usr/local/bin?) and takes affirmative steps to ensure that 
/usr/local/bin precedes /opt/lapack/bin in $PATH.
