Hi guys, I just did an update to the latest trunk version of buildroot, and did 
a defconfig for the AT91SAM9263EK board.  Changed a couple of things like the 
compiler to 4.3.2, binutils to 2.19, and kernel headers to 2.6.28.  Dialog 
fails its configure with the below config.log.  Looks like its picking up the 
host curses library.  Anyone see this before?  Possibly a fix?

Thanks, Matt
