That should not happen. configure has:

    case "$target" in
            if test "$CC" = "cc"; then
              CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Aa +e -D_HPUX_SOURCE"; export CFLAGS
              AC_MSG_WARN(HP-UX's cc)

So, if you have gcc on your system, the unusual CFLAGS should not
be added.

The GNU C++ compiler should be called as g++, I think.

Yes, two possibilities:
  ./configure --with-system-ncurses
  ./configure --without-dialog

As long as the relative structure (binaries vs. texmf tree) is
kept intact, the binaries can even be used by other people in other
directories. The usual rules apply, so if you have used non-standard
shared libraries (e.g. for X11 or some curses lib), other people will
need that, too.
