One reason for sure that you'll not see any output from the tests linked
against dummy.rel is that there's no TERM environment variable.  Also,
the tests provide a main function which conflicts with the RTEMS main

The build procedure for the ncurses package was not intended to create
working tests.  Only the programs in the examples directory should be
expected to work.

When I compiled the tests with -Dmain=rtems_main and used the following
Init routine I was able to run the curses tests I tried.

Init (rtems_task_argument ignored)
        static char *argv[] = {
        putenv ("TERM=xterm");
        rtems_main (1, argv);
