Hello, all.

Im trying to build python 2.3.2 on openbsd 3.4.
First of all, ./configure complains several times about unability to
test sys/select.h, sys/lock.h files:

...
checking ncurses.h usability... no
checking ncurses.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: ncurses.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: ncurses.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?

then, after gmake all i got:

icct at service ..ild/Python-2.3.2% gmake all
gcc -pthread -c -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -I. -I./Include  -DPy_BUILD_CORE -o Modules/python.o
Modules/python.c

                 from Include/Python.h:48,
                 from Modules/python.c:3:

Any ideas how to fix this?
Btw, python 2.2.x builds without a single complain.
