Can be set as an optdepends for netcfg, it's only needed for the menu
function which not many people use.

Same goes for wpa_supplicant and wireless tools - netcfg works
without, it just won't connect to wireless networks - only
ethernet/ppp (if ppp installed) -- though make sure they're on the
install cd.
