lib/tty/tty_ncurses.c accesses internal data structures, breaks compilation with NetBSD curses

The code that manipulates the ncurses backend into changing the key combination to generate SIGINT from CTRL-c to CTRL-g does so by accessing undocumented internal ncurses data structures.
This breaks compilation with netbsd-curses[0], and could also break when the ncurses author decides to change internal structures in a future release.
