Compiling Octave -- Necessary Terminal Libraries?

I recently downloaded the latest source for Octave (octave-2.1.21)
and tried to compile.  During configuration I got the following

configure: warning: I couldn't find -ltermcap, -lterminfo,
        -lncurses, -lcurses, or -ltermlib!

So, do I need all of these?  Or just some of them.  My disk space
is somewhat tight so I don't want to install more development
libraries than I need.  This information would be a good to add
to the FAQ section that discusses requirements to compile octave.

Also, I was impressed by the number of new functions (in control,
anyway) for the development version.  Is octave going to be launched
as a release version anytime soon?
