    The issue is that no ncurses headers are installed by default (nor  
    any other terminal library

Wow.  I never would have guessed a system chooses to install *no*
tty library by default.  Thanks for looking into it.

    The TL source tree includes libs/ncurses, so one possibility would
    be to use our own copy of that

Yes, that would be desirable, but I can't spend time on it now.  Maybe
when I'm working on the new Texinfo release next year sometime.

    It's not clear to me how we can easily modify the texinfo  
    configuration so that it falls back to TL's private copy of lib/ 

No need -- using TL's curses would be preferable, just as it is in
general for TL programs+libraries.
