checking for linking with curses library... OK
checking for tgetent()... configure: error: NOT FOUND!
You need to install a terminal library; for example ncurses.
Or specify the name of the library with --with-tlib.

patch vim.eclass to not overconstrain vim's configure script
This works for me.
If you look in vim's configure script, it tries tinfo first, followed by ncurses, then other things, so I don't see why this wouldn't work for everyone.
Note that the comment that is removed in my patch appears to be outdated - the current context looks nothing like what the patch in bug 93970 does.
