In my 7.8-rc1 system, I did:

./configure --prefix=/usr   \
             --with-shared   \
             --without-normal \
             --without-debug  \
             --without-cxx-binding \
             --with-abi-version=5

make

$ ls -l lib/libn*
lrwxrwxrwx 1     15 Sep 17 16:13 lib/libncurses.so -> libncurses.so.5
lrwxrwxrwx 1     17 Sep 17 16:13 lib/libncurses.so.5 -> libncurses.so.5.9
-rwxrwxr-x 1 378960 Sep 17 16:13 lib/libncurses.so.5.9

We only need then

cp libncurses.so* /usr/lib

Should I modify the LFS Chapter 6 ncurses note to reflect that?
