I can successfully rebuild Python 2.2 without -DBROKEN_LINKER --
specifically, the _curses module now links without any errors.

I "tested" Cygwin Python 2.2-1 which was built against the previous
ncurses version and did not uncover any problems. By, "tested" I mean
imported the _curses module into the Python interpreter. I have never
personally used this module, so I don't have the knowledge to easily
test it further.
Thanks for fixing the BROKEN_LINKER issue.
