ncurses with sarge

Hi Deb Peoples..

	I am trying to compile xfbb from source (rather than using deb binaries) with 
sarge (Testing), howver, I get an error -DUSE_NCURSES when I try to install 
them it wont let me using "apt-get install ncurses" 
Package ncurses is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package ncurses has no installation candidate

Tried various others finding packages with "apt-cache search ncurses" however, 
older versions 4 & 5 are shown. When trying to install says latest installed 
and older version obsolete..  

Any help much appreciated..
