Mandrake (and redhat and probably others) compile ncurses without the
"--with-termlib" option. The "--with-termlib" option splits ncurses into
two: libncurses and libtinfo. It's not "wrong" to do it one way or the
other, but applications compiled against it need to match.

In other words, either download a bsd-games rpm that was build for redhat
or mandrake, or grab a source rpm from somewhere and try rebuilding on
your machine it (or of course, just dload the source of bsd-games and
compile it yourself)
