I just installed ncursesw 6.1 with "./configure --enable-widec 
--with-shared --enable-ext-colors --enable-ext-mouse  --with-termlib 
--with-ticlib --prefix=/usr/local && make install" and now I have in 
/usr/local/lib/ both libtinfow.so and libncursesw.so.  cbreak is in 

Running gtypist-2.9.5/configure prints:

checking ncursesw/ncurses.h usability... yes
checking ncursesw/ncurses.h presence... yes
checking for ncursesw/ncurses.h... yes
checking for add_wch in -lncursesw... yes
checking for library containing cbreak... no
configure: error: Can't find cbreak() in -lncursesw or -ltinfo

but instead ./configure shall check for cbreak() in -ltinfow .
