Disappointing dependency introduced in 9.1 (from 8-STABLE)

Because I build a lot of embedded devices with serial consoles, I was in
the habit of hacking /boot/loader by commenting out a line in a Makefile
that enables terminal emulation
and then in /sys/boot doing a make clean && make
unfortunately, with 9.X, this breaks the compile. It seems a dependency
was introduced which requires the videoconsole code. I find this extremely
irritating. Of course, there's nothing to stop me (at the moment) from
compiling loader under 8-STABLE and installing it on 9.1 machines, but...
Is there a better way now to stop the cursor from scribbling illegibly
across the screen?
