I expect only xentop depends on ncurses-devel. We could detect that

I tihink, as for just building without manpages, this is quite inconventient
for most, especially starting users.
Such basic tools should not silently kept unbuilt, but the buid should stop.
There shoud then be some build option like "--no-xentop" and
"--no-docs"  to build xen explicitly even if the buid dependencies for
these aren't met.
