Does it tell you anything useful if you run Makefile.PL with environment variable CURSES_VERBOSE set to a truthy value? It seems that all tests for existence of Curses functions somehow managed to fail.

    When I installed Curses.pm there were no error messages, suggesting a clean install. There is no reason why I can't run it again to see if there was any indication of something amiss. For that matter, I can add another line or two to the minimal example file and see if it continues happily possible bitching about improper initialization but alive for all that. So what do you do when your fireplace runs out of room for another iron?
