You should never use --nodeps.
I built against a non-updated RHEL4 machine. There's no reason you
should need a new package. Indeed, I see that libncurses.so.5 is
part of ncurses-5.4-13.

Um, based on the running kernel you want the latter (smp) package.
Why are you running openafs-kernel-version.sh?
