debian woody: error at "make menuconfig"

I want to recompile the kernel with a newer version of gcc.
But typing "make menuconfig", the following message appears:

=== Begin of the error message======
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.20/scripts/lxdialog'
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -DLOCALE -DCURSES_LOC="<curses.h>" -c -o lxdialog.o lxdialog.c
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.20/scripts/lxdialog'
make:*** [menuconfig] Error 2
=== End of the error message =====

What is wrong with my OS?

My hardware: Athlon XP1800+, Sparkle GeForce MX420, Elitegroup K75SA main board

Please help me

Does "make config" work?

If so, you may have a problem with "curses" which is needed to make the menus in "menuconfig".
