Hi Rich

I using ubuntu 13.10 with powerpc arch.
I tried the above stepss and below are the output of the related commands..

nm -D /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so | grep tgetent
0000def0 T tgetent
ubuntu@t4240-ubuntu1310:~$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so
libtinfo-dev:powerpc: /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so

However I'm  not able to perform   rm -f config.cache as there is no config.cache file

Thanks for the wonderful support.

Did you rerun configure after installing the package?  This is
necessary because the autoconf script changes one of the variable
definitions depending on what is installed.

If in doubt this should fix things:

  sudo apt-get install libtinfo-dev
  rm -f config.cache
  make clean

FYI on my Ubuntu 13.10 machine:

  $ nm -D /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so | grep tgetent
  00000000000112c0 T tgetent
  $ dpkg -S /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so
  libtinfo-dev:amd64: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so
