This problem is not specific to HC11 port of gdb.
If gdb is configured in native mode (i386), the configure
will probably fail in the same way.

It seems that ncurses or curses is missing.
Gdb configures and compiles correctly on a Debian (this is
what I use at work). So, I suggest to try installing ncurses

I'm an Debian/GNU Linux user and an newbie in M68HC11
I Bougth an control card (MRC11) from Mekatronix, and
pretend to use it
with linux.
I've downloaded the source files

    * gcc-m68hc1x-20020922.tar.gz
    * GNU Binutils 2.12.1
    * GCC 3.0.4
    * GDB 5.2.1
    * Newlib 1.10.0

and aplied the patch files, as you tell in your seccio
evrything is ok, except for the compilation of GDB (the
rest i haven't
any problems)

the steps i followed were:

 #  gzip -d gdb-5.2.1-m68hc1x-20020908.diffs.gz
 #  tar xvzf gdb-5.2.1.tar.gz
 #  mv gdb-5.2.1 gdb-5.2.1-m68hc1x
 # cd gdb-5.2.1-m68hc1x
 #  patch -p1 < ../gdb-5.2.1-m68hc1x-20020908.diffs

after that i tried to create the make file with

 # sh ./configure --target=m6811-elf

after a litle bit while, i get the error message ...

checking compiler warning flags...  -Wimplicit
-Wreturn-type -Wcomment -Wtrigraphs -Wformat
-Wparentheses -Wpointer-arith -Wuninitialized
checking for cygwin... no
checking for tgetent in -lncurses... (cached) no
checking for tgetent in -lHcurses... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermlib... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... (cached) no
checking for tgetent in -lcurses... (cached) no
checking for tgetent in -lterminfo... no

configure: error: Could not find a term library
Configure in /homestaff/bmarq/tmp/gdb-5.2.1-m68hc1x/gdb
failed, exiting.

What's wrong ?
Are there any other GNU packges i Should have installed ?
Coul'd you help me ?
Best regards
