Note, selecting libncurses5-dev instead of libncurses-dev

Package tk-dev is a virtual package provided by:
  tk8.4-dev 8.4.9-1
  tk8.0-dev 8.0.5-11
You should explicitly select one to install.

ncurses5 is fine, but you don't need tk for menuconfig???

wajig search (or apt-cache, ap-get, apt-whatever search) is your friend.
