OK.  On my FC4 x86_64 system these links were made during the OS

The error is slightly different this time.  Notice the comment:

"skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libcurses.so when searching for -lcurses"

> /usr/lib64/gcc-lib/x86_64-suse-linux/3.3.5/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld:
> skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libcurses.a when searching for -lcurses

> Suggestion?

I think that the curses library needs to be reinstalled.  RedHat and FC 
of Linux use RPM.  I am not sure what SuSE uses, but you need to do the 
of curses before mctext will be able to link.

> Thanks,

Please let me know what happens after you reinstall the curses library.  Thanks!
