Not sure about your environment fully but your messages indicate that you need to install the Ncurses packages (perhaps from an existing repository) or else a straight make/install.

As to the gcc error, I have sometimes seen the need to establish a symbolic link to the actual executable (called in my case 'gcc-4.0' as below. This so the compile step can find the actual executable.

ls-l /usr/bin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 2007-07-31 22:22 /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-4.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 104520 2006-04-20 16:51 /usr/bin/gcc-4.0

create the link with ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.0

Hope this helps.

Do you have crosstool's gcc in your PATH?
export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/arm/2.95.3/bin"
