Yes, it does happen, I have non-color menus. That's because nconfig also mixes
wide ncurses library with non wide ncurses headers.

gcc -Wp,-MD,scripts/kconfig/.nconf.o.d -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-
prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -I/usr/include/ncurses -
DCURSES_LOC="<ncurses.h>" -DLOCALE -c -o scripts/kconfig/nconf.o

/usr/include/ncurses is non wide version of ncurses headers (but on other
distros it could be done differently aka /usr/include/ncures being wide

gcc -o scripts/kconfig/nconf scripts/kconfig/nconf.o
scripts/kconfig/ scripts/kconfig/nconf.gui.o -lncursesw -lmenu -
lpanel -lncurses

and here it's linked to non wide version of library (also to wide, too due to
scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/ putting it here)

Anyway way to solve this is:
- detect if ncurses header is wide or non-wide
- link with proper ncurses library based on detected header
