Yep, there is no package that goes by this name. What you are
searching for contains Ncurses, but is called slightly differently.

When building a kernel you might want to check the "kernel-package"
package which will help to do it the Debian way, i.e. by creating a
deb package you can install.
Incidentally, this kernel-package package suggests to also install
libncurses-dev, which is a virtual package provided by libncurses5-dev
and just what you are searching for.
