Full build.log here: http://www.bx.psu.edu/~phalenor/build.log

Interesting bits are at the end:

Running tic to install 
/afs/bx.psu.edu/user/phalenor/build/rt/destdir/share/terminfo ...

 	You may see messages regarding extended capabilities, e.g., AX.
 	These are extended terminal capabilities which are compiled
 		tic -x
 	If you have ncurses 4.2 applications, you should read the INSTALL
 	document, and install the terminfo without the -x option.

"terminfo.tmp", line 306, terminal 'lpr': can't link l/lpr to p/printer
? tic could not build 
make[1]: *** [install.data] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory 
make: *** [install] Error 2

Tt's trying to use hardlinks. AFS doesn't support hardlinks across 
directory boundaries. Adding --enable-symlinks to scripts/ncurses/build 
lets it get past ncurses.

Let's see how far it gets this time.

Thanks for the reminder about build.log. Clearly it's been too long since 
I've done this.
