patch -p0 file

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/man --disable-debug

failed with the error

checking for readline in -lreadline... no
configure: error: No suitable version of libreadline found

The problem is that readline needs ncurses, but doesn't drag it in
I've attached my patch of configure.ac to check for ncurses. After running
autoconf, nft configured and built fine.
