   You need to install the libncurses-devel package for your system to get the
 appropriate [n]curses.h header.  It's probably a bug that gdb_curses.h doesn't
 at least emit a warning if it doesn't find any header at all, since as you
 have seen tui-data.h relies on it critically for the definition of WINDOW.
 
   (I just ran into this exact same problem on cygwin, although in my case a
 busted symlink was responsible for configure not finding ncurses.h;
 reinstalling the ncurses-devel fixed it.)
