I think that I catched the problem:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=379447

_curses.so should be linked to libncursesw.so.5 and not 
libncurses.so.5. I tested on Hardy and I doesn't work because 
_curses.so was linked to libncurses.so.5.

Few commands...
 sudo apt-get install libncursesw5-dev
 make clean
 make

and it works ;-) Possible workaround: reject non-unicode ncurses 
library in setup.py. The ugly patch:

Ugly because it may break the curses module compilation on many OS 
(BSD and Solaris?).
