ncurses: fix hanging installation due to old version of tic
Closes #3685 During installation of ncurses, the 'tic' program from the host is used. In some cases, this version of tic is too old for the data to be processed, and the installation hangs indefinitely (already reported in July 2010, see [1]) With this patch, a static version of tic is built and used during the installation step of target ncurses. This method is based on a similar fix in Gentoo Linux (see [2] for the report and [3] for the solution).
