Re: test for curses before bootstrap

Is curses support really *necessary* for any of the bootstrap tools?

(as far as I remember:)

Currently, it is "necessary" for the FTP client program (tnftp), which requires it for user interaction. I think a good solution would be to disable that part of tnftp, since it is not essential to its main function, which is downloading things.
