      You need to install a terminal library; for example ncurses.
      On Linux that would be the libncurses-dev package.
      Or specify the name of the library with --with-tlib.
Makefile:2069: recipe for target 'auto/config.mk' failed

You need to install the ncurses (libncurses-dev) development package (as the error message at the end states). If you are using a Ubuntu system, you can use the following command:

sudo apt install libncurses-dev
