does anyone of you have a patch to remove ncurses from uclibc ?

thanks for the suggestion. indeed I was not clear enough.

I want to be able to perform a "make oldconfig" without ncurses
installed at all. the intl is not the issue here.

it's possible with the kernel. ncurses is only needed if we
want to do a menuconfig. it should be possible with uclibc to
be able to compile uclibc from scratch without having ncurses
installed (whether it's just the headers or not).
