What kind of system are you on?

Sometimes the curses module is not built by default.
This may mean that configure could not find your curses libs.

It is included with the base distribution, but you may need to compile
again after editing Modules/Setup.

Sorry I can't be more specific, I had some trouble with this too,
but still have trouble finding the words to describe how i fixed it.
