ncurses: kernel make menuconfig complains

Package: ncurses
Version: N/A
Severity: normal

I got the following lines when trying to make menu config.
How can I solve it ?
Aren't dependency problems supposed to be fixed automatically by dpkg ?  

There seems to be a problem with the lxdialog companion utility which is
built prior to running Menuconfig.  Usually this is an indicator that you
have upgraded/downgraded your ncurses libraries and did not remove the 
old ncurses header file(s) in /usr/include or /usr/include/ncurses.

It is VERY important that you have only one set of ncurses header files
and that those files are properly version matched to the ncurses libraries 
installed on your machine.

You may also need to rebuild lxdialog.  This can be done by moving to
the /usr/src/linux/scripts/lxdialog directory and issuing the 
"make clean all" command.

If you have verified that your ncurses install is correct, you may email
the maintainer <mec@shout.net> or post a message to
<linux-kernel@vger.rutgers.edu> for additional assistance.
