Recently, when building the Emacs-23 branch on my Cygwin machine, I'd
forgotten to install curses-devel. The configure script should have
failed, but instead, compilation proceeded until linking, when the job
failed with /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/4.3.4/../../../../i686-pc-cygwin/bin/ld:
cannot find -lcurses

The configure script ought to look for ncurses, then curses, and fail
if neither is found (or at least unset TERMINFO)
