OK, then it's not a problem, because configure does the right thing.

Are those functions in the curses library?  You can ask in the S-Lang
mailing list, but I think it will be easier to reimplement those functions
rather than link to -lcurses.  S-Lang used to depend on -lcurses in the
past on some UNIX systems, but this dependency was later eliminated.
