Compile z+angband on linux

Greets people.
I'm trying to compile z+angband on my debian but after I type "make" in src directory a get the error:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcurses
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [lua/tolua] Error 1
I follow instructions from readme file that comes with the tarball:
=== Quick and dirty compilation instructions (for Unix) === 

Step 1: Acquire.  Ftp to ""
                  Try "bin" and "mget angband*.tar.gz" and "y"
Step 2: Extract.  Try "gunzip *.gz" then "tar -xvf *.tar"
Step 3: Prepare.  Try "cd angband*/src", then edit "Makefile"
                  You may also edit "h-config.h" and "config.h"
Step 4: Compile.  Try "make", and then "cd .." if successful
Step 5: Execute.  Try "angband -uTest" to initialize stuff
Step 6: Play....  Read the "online help" via the "?" command.
...well step 1 confuse me a bit but I suppose it refers to the downloading of game source itself (I get it from )
Any help?

If he's compiling from source presumably he will also want to install libncurses5-dev ...
