broken ncurses?

I suspect a broken ncurses setup is the root of my problems.  The
ncurses-base and ncurses-bin packages install fine, but when trying
to reinstall ncurses itself I got the following:

# dpkg --install ncurses3.4_1.9.9g-8.deb 
(Reading database ... 28942 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace ncurses3.4 1.9.9g-8 (using ncurses3.4_1.9.9g-8.deb)
Unpacking replacement ncurses3.4 ...
Setting up ncurses3.4 (1.9.9g-8) ...
ldconfig: warning: can't open /usr/lib/libncurses.so.3.4 (No such file or
directory), skipping

I suspect that in trying to fix this I managed to annihilate my
ncurses.3.4.so file, as bedore something like this showed up (I think in
/lib), but now find gives:

$ find / -name "ncurses*" -print
find: /usr/share/emacs/20.2/site-lisp: Permission denied
find: /etc/ppp: Permission denied
find: /var/spool/cron/atjobs: Permission denied
find: /var/spool/cron/atspool: Permission denied

Anyone know what I should do to rectify this situation?
