[issue9408] curses: Link against libncursesw instead of libncurses

New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:
Because of #7384, Python3 now links _curses.so to ncurses library (bytes version) instead of ncursesw library (unicode version) if readline is linked to ncurses. I'm using Linux (Debian Sid).
On Linux, Python3 should maybe only link to the unicode version, because the bytes version has many issues with unicode and lacks many functions.
- #1428494: "Prefer linking against ncursesw over ncurses library" (so I consider this issue as a regression).
(reuse the nosy list from #7384)
components: Library (Lib), Unicode
nosy: Arfrever, akuchling, asmodai, haypo, mark.dickinson, r.david.murray, rpetrov, skrah
