Try not changing the order, and simply adding the argument [-lncurses]
to the panel check.  That is:

AC_CHECK_LIB(panel, update_panels, [GNT_LIBS="$GNT_LIBS -lpanel"],
             [enable_consoleui=no], [-lncurses])

(This is what I suggested the last time this came around, I believe.
 Did it not work?  If not, what is the error?)


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
