make menuconfig doesn't find ncurses headers

Make menuconfig doesn't find ncurses headers on my system, howerver ncurses-devel package is installed. I get the following error message:
make menuconfig
 *** Unable to find the ncurses libraries or the
 *** required header files.
 *** 'make menuconfig' requires the ncurses libraries.
 *** Install ncurses (ncurses-devel) and try again.
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/dochecklxdialog] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
I even did a reinstall of all ncurses related stuff with
yum reinstall ncurses ncurses-libs ncurses-devel
but doesn't changed anything.

Recently I tried to install Adobe Air on my 64 bit system, wich required a lot off stuff, but in the end I does not succeded. I kept track all of the packages wich I had to install to make Air work, and later I removed all of them and all the dependencies pulled in one by one - I think the ncurses problem appeard then, I broke something, but I don't know what.

I use Fedora 14 x86_64 KDE

Any help would be great, I use linux for 5-6 years now, but I'm new at Fedora.

Thank you in advance!
