You need to verify that the ncurses package is correctly installed,
and then when running mosh's configure script, ensure that you have
/usr/gnu/lib (assuming that's where your ncurses libs are) in your
CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS via something like this:
CFLAGS="-L/usr/gnu/lib" CXXFLAGS="-L/usr/gnu/lib" ; export CFLAGS CXXFLAGS
It's preferable to get gcc to use an rpath rather than forcing
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include /usr/gnu/lib, but if that's what it
takes, that's what it takes.
