apt-get install ncurses-base

did the trick for me. That is, I meanwhile managed to compile pine myself :)

Yet I still have a problem: When selecting items in pine using the 
'mouse' (touchscreen), the virtual keyboard always pops up. AFAIK this 
was different in the 2005 OS (I left out the latest 2005 version from 
this year), there the virtual keyboard only came up when pressing the 
select key.

Any idea how to get the old behaviour?
