Not the solution you're looking for but ... Have you installed the
ncurses5-dev package and ran a make menuconfig?

It looks like tk is having problems with colors from your error
message.  Perhaps your rgb.txt file from your X installation is somehow
the source of the problem.  Perhaps addind "Black" in addition to
"black" will allow you to continue with xconfig.
