Hi,

Something must have gone wrong with the install of ncurses. lncursesw (that what cannot be found: ..../bin/ld: cannot find -lncursesw) is part of ncurses and should have been installed.

Please post some more details next time you post. I do believe this is not the latest stable LFS 6.5 (looking at the package versions you mention).
