Not A Bug.

--without-curses is intended as a "hacking" option. If you use it, you're on your own (and any modules which use curses/vask aren't going to compile).

Given that it is almost never used, it wasn't deemed worth the effort of explicitly conditionalising libraries and modules upon $(USE_CURSES). Also, it's arguably better to have the list of missing libraries/modules in error.log.

7.0 doesn't use curses at all, so this isn't applicable there.

I'm leaving this open for now, as I'm not sure whether to resolve it as "invalid" or "wontfix".
