nano's configure only looks for curses as -lcurses, -lncurses or -lslang(?). I've seen several post that say to copy, link or rename libpdcurses.a to libcurses.a, is this correct?

Or another option would be to build ncurses, but I have seen posts that say, pd is for windoes, n is not, and when I tried to build, I realized that I would have to patch the source (i can't remember the compiler error, sorry). So not sure if ncurses can be built with mingw for windows?
