Making all in disc_and_drive

dwuserinterface.a(cdw_ncurses.o): undefined reference to symbol 'keypad'
/lib64/ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [Makefile:746: cdw] Error 1

tinfo is enabled:

sys-libs/ncurses-5.9-r101::gentoo was built with the following:
USE="gpm tinfo unicode" ABI_X86="32 (64) (-x32)"

sys-libs/ncurses-6.1-r2::gentoo was built with the following:
USE="cxx gpm static-libs tinfo unicode -ada -debug -doc -minimal -profile -test -threads -trace" ABI_X86="32 (64) (-x32)"

I made it to build like this:
DEPEND="... virtual/pkgconfig"

src_configure() {
    econf LIBS="$("$(tc-getPKG_CONFIG)" --libs ncurses)"
