This tree seems to change the Makefile dependancies in the kconfig subdirectory such that a plain compile of the kernel leads to an attempt to build the menuconfig targets. This in turn adds a new dependancy on the curses development libraries.

This seems to come from this rather innocent sounding change in that tree:

kconfig/lxdialog: refactor color support

which also seems to change the Makefile about, specifically bringing the sub Makefile into the top level one.

- $(Q)$(MAKE) $(build)=scripts/kconfig/lxdialog
+# lxdialog stuff
+check-lxdialog := $(srctree)/$(src)/lxdialog/check-lxdialog.sh
