#1534 new bug

Building with curses fails on cygwin

Description

... because of the change announced here: http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-announce/2010-01/msg00002.html:

You must now specify explicitly -I/usr/include/ncurses when compiling
against ncurses. The package no longer provides in the top /usr/include
directory symlinks to the header files in /usr/include/ncurses. This is for compatibility/interop with the wide ncurses library.

This means our buildsystem will need to add -I/usr/include/ncursesw if building the gcu port, after we've moved to UTF-8 (#1221).
