sudo make menuconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
v HOSTCC scripts/basic/docproc
HOSTCC scripts/basic/hash
HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/conf.o
scripts/kconfig/conf.c: In function ‘conf_askvalue’:
scripts/kconfig/conf.c:104: warning: ignoring return value of ‘fgets’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result
scripts/kconfig/conf.c: In function ‘conf_choice’:
scripts/kconfig/conf.c:306: warning: ignoring return value of ‘fgets’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result
HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/kxgettext.o
*** Unable to find the ncurses libraries or the
*** required header files.
*** 'make menuconfig' requires the ncurses libraries.
***
*** Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.

There are also "make xconfig" and "make kconfig" which don't use the ncurses-library.

You need the ncurses headers to compile the menuconfig tool, that's usually installed by a package named ncurses-devel or something similar.

About {x,k,g}config, I guess the problem is the same, you need the respective header files for every set of libraries (xlib, qt, gtk+). I've never used them, I consider that an overkill just to configure a kernel. But in case you or anyone else reading the thread cares...
