I can't actually see any change that could be related.

This implies HAVE_STRCODES is not defined but strcodes is supplied
anyway.  It might be worth looking in config.log to see if the test for
strcodes threw up any odd errors (e.g. didn't compile for some spurious
reason).  Possibly there is yet more grief to do with ordering of tests
for terminal-related headers and libraries, though this hasn't changed
for months.

We could work around this as follows, and the change looks entirely
benign, but I suspect the problems in configure mean this isn't the
right fix.
