Kernel Compile on Potato

Tonight I installed frozen on a k6-2 system, and am trying to compile a new kernel for it, but make menuconfig fails. I have ncurses installed, and so I should be able to run it, but as it says below it dies in /usr/src/linux/scripts/lxdialog on the line with:
#include CURSES_LOC

Below is the actual output, I went through the files mentioned, but nothing looks obviously wrong (at least to me). I can make config, but 3 times so far I've tried it and have fat-fingered it at some point, usually near the end. Now, in the dialog, directory it mentions that that is a non-standard version could this be a problem?


# make menuconfig
rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.2.15/scripts/lxdialog'
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -DLOCALE -DCURSES_LOC="<curses.h>" -c -o lxdialog.o lxdialog.c
