What to install for ncurses libraries?


I'm trying to make menuconfig a kernel, but I get this error:
Code:
basement:/usr/src/linux# make menuconfig
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lncurses
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

>> Unable to find the Ncurses libraries.
>>
>> You must install ncurses-devel in order
>> to use 'make menuconfig'

make[2]: *** [scripts/lxdialog/ncurses] Error 1
make[1]: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
I tried
Code:
basement:/usr/src/linux# apt-get install ncurses-devel
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package ncurses-devel
But that never installed it. So does anyone know what I need to install? Thanks in advance for your help.
