branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

So the host ncurses includes and library are used instead of a mix of both,
causing corrupted characters.  Similar to the linux fix in commit
6d3d09e23213e8 (linux: don't override HOSTCC for kconfig), except that we
pass the linker flags in HOSTLDFLAGS.
