following up Thomas Petazzonis todays post about optimizing the ncurses build 
I would like to bump this patch as well for inclusion with the following 

The line including NCURSES_CONFIG_SCRIPTS needs to be moved after the

(Sorry, I do not use git)

Ncursesw seems to be needed[1] for VLC if BR2_PACKAGE_VLC_NCURSES=y is set, 
see http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/171335/ for the VLC patch.
