As far as source goes - look at systems/lkb.system 

There's the :tty installation - i.e., what happens anyway if you
compile the system in a context where there's no CLIM.  Maybe you'd
also need to prevent :lui

You might be able to remove some other files too but it would be a
good idea if whatever configuration you end up with can be checked in
to lkb.system - otherwise you won't keep in sync if someone
adds/deletes a file from the core LKB
