I had to do

make LDLIBS=-lncurses

This is the expected behavior when you do not use the configure script.

That being said, recently support was added for compiling on Mac OS X without running the configure script, so this could be an option for better supporting Fedora also. So this could be an option, but another Fedora user might just as well have ncursesw installed, which makes it a bit harder to find a good solution.

Personally, I prefer to change the default link depedency to -lncursesw and encourage people to read INSTALL and/or use the configure script.
