Error msg when trying to config kernel

Hi! I try to config my extracted 2.4.28 kernel with make menuconfig, this is what I get:

zthlinux:/home/zth/linkernel/linux-2.4.28 # make menuconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/zth/linkernel/linux-2.4.28/scripts/lxdialog'
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i586-suse-linux/3.3.3/../../../../i586-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lncurses
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

>> Unable to find the Ncurses libraries.
>> You must have Ncurses installed in order
>> to use 'make menuconfig'

make[1]: *** [ncurses] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/zth/linkernel/linux-2.4.28/scripts/lxdialog'
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

I re-downloaded and installed ncurses 5.4-61.3 but it gives me the same error .
Help plz.
