krb5-1.4 make error: undefined reference to `tgetent'

I'm getting error "undefined reference to `tgetent'" when compiling
krb5-1.4.  A google search said to add -libncurses to LIBS in the
Makefile, but there are LOTS of Makefiles in krb5-1.4/src.  Is there a
simpler way to get libncurses added to LIB in all Makefiles?

$ ./configure --without-krb4
$ make

gcc -L../../../lib -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib -g -O2 -Wall
