Installing libncurses will solve your problem. Try this if you are using any Debian OS: sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev.
It fails because (in contrast to prepared source tarballs) the svn repositroy does not contain intermediate files used by autotools. I'm not too familar with AT or ctags, but try running automake and autoconf before running ./configure again. The procedure is probably located somewhere in a INSTALL file or a documentation folder, you might want to look for ...

That syntax error hints that the ./configure failed. Do you have libtool installed/up to date?
Not specific to gdb, an explanation (along with possible solutions) is here.
