According to a thread on the cmake mailing list and also

10.6.3 breaks ncurses, and because the ccmake GUI depends on that, breaks
ccmake. I assume Apple will fix ncurses for 10.6.3, but until that happens,
don't use ccmake (or any other ncurses-based GUI) on that platform.
In any case, ccmake is a really dated GUI, and probably cmake-gui (available
in CMake-2.8.x and based on Qt) is a better (or at least nicer looking) GUI
option. However, my personal opinion is the "cmake" application with
appropriate -D options is the best method of configuring a build with CMake.
To figure out the available "cmake" options, run "cmake" with default
options (i.e., with no -D options and with path to the top-level PLplot
source tree) in an initially empty build tree. After that look at the
CMakeCache.txt results (which are annotated with explanations of the
