This is odd [1].

You are right. We added it in the past because readline seems to be
linked against termcap, forcing us to get linked against it (or
something similar, I don't remember clearly). But, if nobody requires
such depedency, go ahead.

I've checked if vortex-client builds without such dependency and works
properly, so I've removed it from the Makefile.am.

Ok. I've commited the change to the stable svn.
