      Correct, I did ipkg install ncurses-dev. It's in /opt/lib/ but somehow it's
      not being found.

      I was able to copy it to /opt/armeb/arv5b-softfloat-linux/lib, and that got
      rid of the missing library error, and I had to copy curses.h into
      /opt/armeb/arv5b-softfloat-linux/include .

      It appears to compile, but when I try to run it it gives me

      ./htop: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open
      shared object file: No such file or directory

      I'm once again stumped. Just where does it expect these things to be?

      You have installed the ncurses-dev development libraries and not just the
      standard ones?

      Did you set the prefix parameter for your configure? There is
