alsa-utils: force the variant of ncurses library
Two variants of the ncurses library exist: the normal one, and the ncursesw one, which has support for wide char. Currently, Buildroot only builds the normal variant (the second variant requires --enable-widec while compiling ncurses). Unfortunately, when libncursesw is installed on the host, the configure script of alsa-utils finds /usr/bin/ncursesw5-config and thinks that the target has this version. Unfortunately, as this is not the case, it causes a configure failure when trying to link a sample program against libpanelw (which is part of ncurses). Therefore, we force the libncurses variant used by alsa-utils to the normal variant. Later on, if needed, support for the wide-char variant of the libncurses library could be added.
