Since the reworking of the build handling in recent (many) months "sh: 
./make_keys: Exec format error" is a long standing problem for buildworld for 
cross builds. The native part of the build execution is trying to execute the 
cross-build target's make_keys (that was likely left from a prior cross-build 
and now doing incremental-build activity). lib/ncurses/ncurses__L is not the 
only place that this can happen. There is past list exchanges for this issue 
with other examples.

I rebuild after cleanworld when this happens in order to force a full rebuild 
instead of an incremental one --but I only build one cross build target at a 
time, not universe. I've never had such an after-cleanworld rebuild fail: only 
some later incremental builds.

Luckily in my experience so far most incremental builds do not go back through 
those areas (such as lib/ncurses/ncurses__L ) and so do not try to execute 
make_keys (stated in terms of this example). So the incremental builds for me 
are usually effective --but sometimes lib/ncurses/ncurses__L is rebuilt.

It has been a fairly long time since my 11.0 related activities (tracking 
stable/11 now) have run into this but likely lib/ncurses/ncurses__L (and the 
like) simply have not rebuilt in my cross builds. I've no head (CURRENT) 
activities going on at this point.
