Compiling entrez-2d on SGI

I followed the suggestion of a friendly netter, and replaced
/usr/5lib/libcurses.a with /usr/lib/libcurses.a in the Makefile.
The binary code was generated. At run time the menu was displayed,
but when I selected a menu option by hiting the "Enter" key I still
got segmentation fault (core dumped).

I had some difficulties in compiling entrez-2d on our SGI server.
I made the following modifications to the entrez-2d package.
- Changed all gcc to cc in Makefile(s).
- Changed all the ranlib to touch in the Makefile(s).
- Removed "void" from line 228 in main.c.
- Put ", TRUE" in line 313 in main.c.
But the final linking failed because a file called /usr/5lib/libcurses.a
could not be found.
As an experiment I removed this file from the list, and got
the executable code generated. When I ran it, the menu appeared
and I could move the cursor around. But when I hit "Enter" to select,
I got "core dumped"
I've sent a request to the original author, but haven't receive
the response yet.
Any help or suggestions are warmly welcom.
