Mandrake (and redhat and probably others) compile ncurses without the 
"--with-termlib" option. The "--with-termlib" option splits ncurses into 
two: libncurses and libtinfo.  It's not "wrong" to do it one way or the 
other, but applications compiled against it need to match.

In other words, either download a bsd-games rpm that was build for redhat
or mandrake, or grab a source rpm from somewhere and try rebuilding on
your machine it (or of course, just dload the source of bsd-games and
compile it yourself)
