ncurses5.9 compile error

When building cross linux from scratch ncurses 5.9 does fail to compile with:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I../ncurses -I.  -D_GNU_SOURCE -DNDEBUG -I. -I../include -I/foo/include/ncurses -O2 --param max-inline-insns-single=1200 -c ../ncurses/lib_gen.c -o ../objects/lib_gen.o
In file included from ../ncurses/curses.priv.h:283,

Use ncurses 6.1 instead.
