Comment(by nematoder):

 An addition: the underlying cause is that I've got 2 ncurses installed:
 one from ports and one from base. The ghc configure script finds the ports
 version in /usr/local/ which doesn't work for whatever reason. By
 supplying -L/usr/lib and -I/usr/include I told it to use ncurses lib in
 base. A newer base might not have this problem (I've built ghc on a 9.0
 current without problems). However, a configure flag to tell the build
 which ncurses lib to use would be reasonable nevertheless.
