the problem is that ncurses has optional gpm support while gpm has optional 
ncurses support.  if you link ncurses against gpm and gpm against ncurses, 
this creates a circular dependency loop which makes a lot of programs 

you can find the Gentoo bug about it here:
and the Redhat bug here:

find attached the patch from Fedora to resolve this ... i imagine you'll want 
to do more with the autotools portion :)
