I just now began my [minimal] kernel config journey per your
I'm stuck: there's no 'HOSTCC'; no [bin/]gcc (nor cc), tho the 'base' gcc is there.
`cards files gcc` doesn't show/list any bin/*cc, so I'm lost/stuck.

**Do I need [to keep] glibc? [probably]

NOW, make menuconfig is missing curses.h  Again, how do I figure out which 'pkg'??
Ok, ncurses.devel

You just miss the devel packages set. So after a:

--- Code: ---get cards.devel
--- End code ---

everything should run smooth like a baby

EDIT: I will add this command to the article
