I don't think this is necessary, and even if it were a straightforward
dependency wouldn't help.
If we decide to move a terminal out of ncurses-term into ncurses-base
then people who have both installed and upgrade ncurses-term before
ncurses-base will miss one of them for a bit. Is this important ?

Someone else will have to answer this.
