I can confirm that on my systems editors/emacs-nox11 is linked to the 
following libraries only:

trond at enterprise:~>ldd /usr/local/bin/emacs
        libutil.so.8 => /lib/libutil.so.8 (0x281ca000)
        libncurses.so.8 => /lib/libncurses.so.8 (0x281d9000)
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x28219000)
        libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x28233000)

FreeBSD systems without X Window System. So far it seems to be a good
