It's an OS-specific problem: try compiling R from sources on the actual
machine you are using.  You are probably missing a compatible ncurses
library (as discussed in the R-admin manual), and we've seen missing
dependencies in (the closely related) Mandriva before.

I think that something similar got solved just by installing ncurses
on some other Linux distro, so that should probably be the first thing
to try.

Ideally this sort of thing should be handled via RPM dependencies, but
not all packagers are equally good at keeping track of them.
