New submission from YAMAMOTO Takashi <yamt at mwd.biglobe.ne.jp>:

this patch fixes "no _curses or _minimal_curses" error i got when
building pypy with pypy on netbsd.

on netbsd, "import _curses" doesn't work because:

- unlike rpython/translator/platform, it doesn't pass enough flags to
  a compiler.  eg. LOCALBASE stuff.
- on typical installation (pkgsrc), ncurses.h is available as ncurses/ncurses.h
- ncurses configuration mismatch? (i'm not sure)
  eg. chtype is int, not long.

and cffi.verify ends up raising VerifycationError.
