Installing the ncurses library in CentOS 6.5

While installing vim from source on CentOS 6.5, I ran into the following error.

checking for tgetent()... configure: error: NOT FOUND!
You need to install a terminal library; for example ncurses.
Or specify the name of the library with --with-tlib.

To fix this, I installed the ncurses library through yum using the following command

$ sudo yum install ncurses-devel
