Runaway1956 is on a distinguished road
Installation advice, please

The background is, Debian archives has an older version of Angband available - v3.1 I think it was. It ran alright - but I wanted to get the latest and greatest, straight from rephial.

I downloaded, configured, and make install that newest, v3.5.1

With the new version, I can't set up the terminals. I know the system can do the terminals because the Debian version would do them, but this version, this compilation, won't do windows for me.

So - here's my log of ./configure. For whatever reason, it reports that curses, is missing libraries, SDL is disabled, Windows is disabled, and SDL sound is disabled. Do I need to feed ./configure an argument of some sort to enable all of that?

I'm going to double check the ncurses dependencies, and install those, but I have little idea how to enable the stuff that is disabled.

(searching for the right way to do codes . . . . )
