ncurses and gcc 3.3

It seems GCC 3.3 has dropped even more compatibility with broken C++ code.
ncurses failed to compile for me because the <strstream.h> header is
missing (the standard conforming name is <sstream>). The attached patch is
a small extension to the current LFS patch. I assume it will work with gcc
3.1 and 3.2, too. If someone can confirm that I think this new patch
should be used by the book.


If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked
