which distro are you using?

if you are using debian related OS (ex : ubuntu, debian) you can use app-get, if you are using Suse related OS (ex : suse, knoppix) you can use yast, if you are using red hat related OS (ex : red hat, fedora) you can yum for installing any package at any time.

You asked the same question in a similar thread yesterday !!
Distro = Ubuntu

Like weibullguy told you (yesterday)
Why not install kismet using synaptics instead of trying to build it from source? If you insist on installing from source, then you need to install libncurses and libncurses-dev.
or please use this command, in a terminal : 'sudo apt-get install libncurses-dev'

P.S.: And please get familiar with 'synaptics'
Synaptics has a search function, finding "everything".
Just search ncurses.
