For reference: in my box I have libncurses* and don't have libtermcap*
(and it's a fairly complete desktop machine with X, KDE, etc.). 'make
linux' from lua-5.2.0-alpha worked fine; no need to modify any flags.

I also logged into a Fedora 13 box and got the same results with the
build. In a 32-bit Fedora 13 box there are both and; in a 64-bit Fedora 13 box (with no build tools
installed), there was only and no
installed. So, I'd say go with "-lncurses".
