Having recently had precisely this problem with trying to install new
luaposix (which includes *integrated* curses support [1]) I feel your
pain.  Finally managed to get a build started with configure and it
did not know where the curses include files sit on a Debian/Ubuntu
system.  I suppose that occasionally it's fine to use a sledgehammer
to kill a mosquitto, but if after all it misses, you end up with a
broken desk.

So put me firmly in the Roberto simple, editable makefile camp. I do
these things with lakefiles these days, but I don't expect everyone to
subscribe to my religion.

[1] bad idea, IMHO. Perhaps 1 out of a 100 users of luaposix need
curses support, and now they must go through extra hoops.
