cmake install problem

I am trying to install cmake 2.8.9 on my Centos6.4 but having following error

gmake: `cmake' is up to date.
loading initial cache file /home/Zaheer/cmake-2.8.9/Bootstrap.cmk/InitialCacheFlags.cmake
Curses libraries were not found. Curses GUI for CMake will not be built.
CMake Error at Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:97 (MESSAGE):
QT_QTCORE_LIBRARY) (Required is at least version "4.4.0")
Call Stack (most recent call first):
Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:288 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE)
Source/QtDialog/CMakeLists.txt:14 (FIND_PACKAGE)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
Error when bootstrapping CMake:
Problem while running initial CMake

It seems it is looking for QT, but that too has been installed.
I am stuck

check out this link:

on the error it says: Curses libraries were not found. Curses GUI for CMake will not be built.

All the files or libraries necessary to install is on your system?

It could be your package having a problem.

Building cmake : # yum install ncurses-devel (Ref. post #2.)

Better : Install the latest "Centos 6.4 cmake" from EPEL
→ epel-release-6-8.noarch →
# yum localinstall epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

# yum install cmake28
.. provides cmake- : /usr/bin/cmake28
