    Making a guess for $inc and/or $libs...
    Making a guess for "c-config.h"...

    I'm sorry, but I couldn't find a hints file that was configured for
    your OS (named hints/c-freebsd.h). You will need to create and configure a
    "c-config.h" file for yourself. Please see the "INSTALL" directions
    for pointers on how to do this.
    make: no target to make.
    /usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
    Running make install
    make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

    Same Issue with me on FreeBSD 5.3, I made an attempt to install it myself but make produced a bunch of errors. so I'm not sure what the deal is, you can give it a try yourself to see if it works for you..

    cd /usr/home/.cpan/build/Curses-1.14
    cp hints/c-freebsd.bsd.h /usr/home/.cpan/build/Curses-1.14/c-config.h
    perl Makefile.PL
    make install

    on make I had errors so I stopped there..

    The following worked for me:


    cd /home/.cpan/sources/authors/id/G/GI/GIRAFFED/
    type; ls -la and search for the version of Curses in the current directory. The version on my server is Curses-1.14.tgz.
    tar -zxvf Curses-1.14.tgz
    cd Curses-1.14
    ln -s hints/c-freebsd.ncurses.h c-config.h
    perl Makefile.PL
    make test
    make install
