Please fixe definitively the ncurses issue by adding a radio selector base/port
For some reasons some people NEED ncurses port, in this case the only solution is to modify Makefile and modify the 'USES' line to ncurses:port
But on version update the Makefile returns to default value.
On a system with more than 2000 ports installed, it is just impossible to deal with number of ports that deal incorrectly with FreeBSD option systems, and this is continuously breaking the automated update process...
SO PLEASE ADD A CONFIG DIALOG MENU WITH A RADIO SELECTOR
With a radio selector, user can deals easily with customized automated option through make.conf

What is the issue that you experience with base ncurses?
Before r547319 it used the ncurses port, but then swills@ wanted to simplify the port and suggested to switch to base ncurses, and I approved this.
Now I need to know what the problem is to assess if it should be switched back to the ncurses port, or to add a port option.
Yes, it would really help to know what the issue is with base ncurses. I don't know of any issues and really think the ncurses port should go away if possible.

patch to make ports ncurses optional
I think this patch is the best way to go.
