[Xen-users] Autoconf fail to check libncurses


I'm trying to build Xen on FreeBSD from sources. 

Autoconf is failing to find libncurses and output this error :

I tried to build ncurses from source in default /usr/local and with 
I tried export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include/ncurses"
I tried the FreeBSD package too : https://www.freshports.org/devel/ncurses-devel

Nothing works and I don't think it's on FreeBSD. The latest xen package is 
outdated and I want to test 4.10.  

Some people said on internet that libncurses is different from libncurses-dev 
and that's why it doesn't work but I cant find any sources or specific build 
options for that.
Thank you for your help.
