Finch does not like the ncurses lib in the base OS for some reason. It will build against it, but it renders improperly. For what ever reason, for the longest time, it was perfectly content choosing the ports one, but post recent ncurses update, it now insists on choosing the base one. To fix this, one most pass the header location to use to configure.
