Unable to compile libncurses with tic/tput

I wish to compile libncurses (build/install with programs e.g., tic).
I've tried removing --without-progs, adding --with-progs but both libncurses and libncurses-dev do not build the binaries.

I thought it may be related to https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1233/commits/542f64d580235562770ab562de3aedddaf3ce826
I added that Host/Install section back in, that didn't work either.

How do I compile ncurses with tic, tput and other binaries?

Do you tried to overwrite the Host/Install using default and tic?

define Host/Install
$(call Host/Install/Default)

I tried this again with the 19.07.4 SDK and it still builds just the libs.
This is the Makefile I used.
