I know ncurses is needed if you want to do make menuconfig.

When I ran into the perl problem, I did  quick kernel config (using 
make menuconfig) and a make dep- just before perl.

Everything worked. I didn't try building it, I plan on more carefully 
making my config choices later (I just wanted Perl to compile...)
