readline 5.2-3, ncurses 5.7-2.

I'm very dubious of that assertion.  Applications which use readline but
do not directly use any curses functions should not need to link with any
curses library.

Your example as described above has nothing to do with the case that we're
talking about since it contains no implicit dependencies.  I'm afraid I
can only conclude that I've not been sufficiently clear and you're not
following my point at all.  I've explained this as clearly as I can,
though.  Maybe someone else can do a better job.
