As anonymous points out, the default build does not link against the system-provided ncurses. To fix, just replace the lines with create.make and make in the build() function in PKGBUILD by:

gcc -o ee -DHAS_UNISTD -DHAS_STDLIB -DHAS_CTYPE -DHAS_SYS_IOCTL -DHAS_SYS_WAIT -DSLCT_HDR ee.c -lcurses

This uses the original Makefile, which doesn't give very good results on any linux system I've tried (spurious border characters and occasional glitches). Suggest changing to something more like the old Debian Makefile, which uses the distro ncurses instead. I've created a pastebin of a working Makefile (without comments). Give it a shot and see what think:
