New submission from Chi Hsuan Yen:
In changeset 919259054621 (from issue12567) and 707761d59a4a (from issue15268),
/usr/include/ncursesw was added to include paths in setup.py and configure.ac.
This is wrong and breaks cross-compiling. For example, if host has
/usr/include/ncursesw/ncurses.h and target has $SYSROOT/include/ncurses.h, the
build fails. An example can be found in .
My patch removes all references to /usr/include/ncursesw and uses a robust
detection, which is suitable for both native builds and cross builds.
Added the authors of aforementioned changesets.
