Hi,
no I'm not suggesting to build it on your own.

Trying to resummarize:

TL;DR - ncurses is not at (ABI) 6, so htop doesn#t get scroll wheel
support atm

Details:
1. htop 2.x + Ncurse 6 = scroll wheel
2. Ncurse is at source version 6
3. But Ncurse is built with API=5 to behave like before
4. Due to that htop does not get the scroll wheel functionality atm

And I was no part of that build or decision I don't know any details.
It was just FYI as I have seen the bug and realized this special build option.

If you are interested what I mean search for
  .so.5
and
  .so.6
