tgetent/ncurses problem while compiling ircII on Debian 10

I'm running ircii-20190117 configure with usual options like --enable-ipv6, and what I see (many times met on other web pages) error:

checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... no

checking for tgetent in -ltinfo... no

checking for tgetent in -ltermlib... no

checking for tgetent in -lcurses... no

checking for tgetent in -lxtermcap... no

checking for tgetent in -lncurses... no

configure: WARNING: i can not find tgetent. you might need to help me

As I said - I visited many web pages where users gave their advises to install various ncurses libs. Now I show what I have already installed and got no problem solved:

build-essential/stable,now 12.6 amd64 [installed]

libncurses5/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 amd64 [installed]

libncurses-dev/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 amd64 [installed]

libncurses5-dev/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 amd64 [installed]

libncurses6/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 amd64 [installed,automatic]

libtinfo-dev/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 amd64 [installed]

ncurses-base/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 all [installed]

ncurses-term/stable,now 6.1+20181013-2+deb10u2 all [installed]

Can someone provide help how to tell ircII to use those libs - like inserting needed paths into Makefile - /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu, /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -- or - use them in ./configure script run ?

Thanks in advance !
