    ncurses: Fix pkgsrc check and use of ncurses
    Without the macro SET_NEED_WCHAR_H defined, the ncurses header will not
    include wchar.h which is where the wint_t type is defined.  This breaks
    any program loading ncurses.h without defining this macro because several
    functions use the wint_t type.
    Define wint_t as int if wchar.h isn't included.  This fixes the ncurses
    check on several pkgsrc configuration checks and allows the package to
    build with the system ncurses.
