Ncurses Appearance Via Putty

I ran into a situation where I wanted to run `make menuconfig` via putty.  All of the graphical characters looked wrong.  Apparently this is a deficiency in Putty handling vt100 commands.  There is a workaround.  Setting the evar below will tell ncurses not to use the ‘alternate character set’.  It’s not perfect but it’s an improvement.

`export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1`
