That's true ! I attempted to run the grass bin directly on an old
slackware linux distribution, and I missed some libraries.

BTW, if somebody attempts to compile grass on an old distribution,
it will not works because the right curses.h file (for libncurses)
is in /usr/include/ncurses/curses.h.

I get rid of this by renaming curses.h and termcap.h in /usr/include
and moving the .h files from /usr/include/ncurses to /usr/include.
