MacOS provides header files for curses 5.7 with support
for wide characters, but requires _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED=1
to activate that.

By default those old header files are used even if there
is a newer Homebrew installation of ncurses 6.2 available.

Change also the old macro definition of NCURSES_WIDECHAR
and set it to 1 like it is done in newer versions of
curses.h when _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED=1 is defined.
