- libncurses-dev (IIRC texinfo needs it)
Texinfo can use basically any termcap/terminfo library.
I expect you already had one installed, but the configure check failed
for some reason. If you can figure out why (see config.log), that would
be great, although I doubt this is going to be a priority in your life :).
Checks for these should be added to configure.
There is no rational way to check for distro-specific "packages". The
check has to be for actual libraries and headers. And as far as I know
libXaw and libXmu already are checked for, at least in xdvi and the
other X-using programs I recall. Do you remember which programs needed
it and didn't check?
